Port Access?

One of the reasons stated is port access. Really? Athens Ga is 225 highway miles from Port of Savannah and about 250 rail miles. By comparison Port of Charleston ( a deep water port like Savannah) is 175 miles by highway and 185 miles by rail from Leland. Georgia is just willing to give away more millions of their taxpayer dollars to locate Caterpillar there for 1400 $12 an hour jobs.

Putting incentives aside,If I were locating a factory like Caterpillar's I would be looking at Athens and Atlanta because that area can provide a larger and better educated labor pool to draw from. I love this area but for manufacturing we have a poorly educated and poorly skilled work force to work with
