Bingo!
You can find statistics to support any argument. Fact of the matter is, the jobs in this area are slim to none.

Level 3 is questionable at best, fraught with a worthless stock and a year full of outsourcing to India.

Emperion, while brining needed jobs, simply doesn't pay well and the work is... undesirable and degrading.

I could care less about %ages. When you have 10 men with a $20/hour jobs that get laid off, and go find jobs for $8/hour, their is no change in the unemployment % statistic. But there is still a very real problem and it's the same story all across the country.

Not to get too political, but this Republican is voting Democrat this year for that very reason. They love to tell us how many new jobs they create. They love to flaunt "unemployment went down 3%/whatever!"
....but what good is a job that doesn't pay what your family needs?!?!
