Caterpillar manufacturing

I take exception to your comment about the work force in the Cape Fear region, you made the general blanket statement that it is a poorly educated and poorly skilled work force. I spent almost 30 years in the industrial work force, and yes I ran across a few dummies, but by and large the Cape Fear region can provide a highly educated and skilled work force, we suffer now because many of our younger people have left the area to find employment.
We have in Cape Fear Community College a great training and educational school, and CFCC produces some very well educated and trained and highly skilled workers.
The real issue is multi-layered, first the state will not provide tax relief to businesses, (we will make up for in income and sales and property taxes), second we suffer a transportation problem because the roads and rails to our area have been neglected for years, thirdly we now have a large population of people who do not want to see any type of manufacturing in the area, because they want to maintain their retirement life, therefore we have a very bad public image.
I would not be surprise to Titan Cement tell the Cape Fear area bye also.
