KY got the JOBS ! LOL...hahaheee

The reason Dburg and Dyer County leadership hire folks from other states and OUT of the area is because they don't want the citizens to know just how incompetent inept the rw leadership really is there!
The bubba system and nepotism has and is destroying the west TN area.

USS Corporate Welfare Docks in West Tennessee
million in federal stimulus funding for a proposed port in northwest Tennessee.!e Port of Cates
Landing will be built in Lake County,
90 miles north of Memphis. In addition
to the federal funding, Gov. Haslam has
promised $7 million from the 2011-2012
state budget to help build the port.21
Regional leaders cite numerous
companies, including ConAgra Foods,
that have expressed a strong interest in
moving to the area if the port is built.
ConAgra, however, denies any intention
to set up shop in northwest Tennessee.
Furthermore, statements by local leaders
suggest that corporate welfare might not have even been necessary to complete the port.!e port’s
marketing committee chairman has admitted that private money had been secured to build the port
in the event that federal and state money could not be obtained.22
!ere is no doubt that this downtrodden area needs an economic boost, but taxpayer money should
not be used to build a port that had the support of private investors.

Why ask wrote:
From what I have seen of the Cates Port it's not much to write home about. A road that goes to a bend in the river, a storage building and a loading dock.
What did they spend $millions on? It's probably better than nothing, but from all the news stories I was expecting a lot more than what I found online.
Maybe in the years to come it will pay off, but it's got a long way to go.
Look in the first post. Who was quoted?

What firm did the design work for this big chunk of nothing?

What firm built a concrete plant near the "port" while the design work was going on?

Where did the millions go? It isn't hard to find.

Republicans have blocked every attempt to provide extended benefits to the long- term unemployed since 2013. Meanwhile they haven't passed a single piece of job-creating legislation. So what has been the result of this "experiment?" The Labor Force participation rate is at a record low in this country:
A record 92,269,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in August, as the labor force participation rate matched a 36-year low of 62.8 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
This, while the "unemployment" rate has fallen to 6.1 %,(no thanks [as the study shows] to the Republican Party, since the effect of cutting off benefits to those long-term unemployed was insignificant to the employment rate) the number of people who have completely given up looking for work continues to reach record levels. How can these two things be reconciled? The major reason is that people who aren't looking for a job at all anymore -- those same long-term unemployed who the Republicans cut off and let slide into the abyss --are not counted as "unemployed."
The 92,269,000 who did not participate in the labor force are those in the civilian noninstitutional population who did not have a job and did not actively seek one in the last four weeks. Because they did not seek a job, they did not count as “unemployed.”
