Haven't heard in a long time who is recruiting any new industry in Forrest City. Is it still a priority for our Chamber of Commerce, City or State officials? Has everyone given up or what? Exactly what are they doing to get jobs here? Even with the economy being what it is, we can't afford to not keep trying. There are still state incentives to get companies to locate here, aren't there? Have we given up or what?

the problem is if industry came here people wouldn't work they'd loose all the free handouts .

We just had 60 working people lose their jobs in the K-Top fire and there is no telling how many qualified people are considered to be under-employed in Forrest City either from low paying wages or reduced hours.Get the industry here-we'll have the people!! Nothing wrong with tax and training incentives for new companies when those salaries add to our city and county's economy.

I really don't think posting on Topix is going to help. How about going to a city council meeting and voicing your concern right to the ones who need to hear it.
