A new plant with 54 jobs is

A new plant with 54 jobs is better than nothing, and there will also be at least temporary positions related to the construction. What are the elected officials in your county doing to promote the area to prospective business? If your country has an office of economic development, as part of their job they should be "shopping" your area via the internet and other resources as a place with room for industry, low cost of living, available work force, etc. If they are not doing this, perhaps it would be a matter for discussion at your next county commissioners meeting. This and offering tax incentives to get a company to relocate is about all that the government can do to create jobs. That's why I think it is laughable for political candidates to claim they will create jobs and lower unemployment. That only happens if they are the one on the phone "selling" your area to a company somewhere, and that's not likely to happen.
