OK guess I just need to vent but where are all the jobs we were suppose to get when the liquor came in Glasgow. I thoght the way you people talked we would see all kinds of new industry in this town. I think it,s a shame you have to go to Bowling Green or somewhere else to get a decent paying job and don,t tell me it,s the economy either you had enough economy to build your new restraunts. And boy did that bring the jobs in Glasgow. Ha waitresing for 2.00 an hour plus tips. I will never vote for or believe anything you people ever say again. All it amounted to was you people just wanted your drinkypoos here.And I remember one buisness man in particular stating how much revenue it would bring into this community. Ha I heard George Jays went broke. So again I ask you fine citizens of Glasgow WHERE ARE THE JOBS!!!!! You are nothing but a bunch of Joe Blows!! I,m done talking now!!!!!!!!!!

I feel exactley the same. There are so many lies told to people here in Glasgow just to get a vote. Alot of these kids graduating need good paying jobs. Along with people who havw been laid off. It, a shame because some have to work to pay for their college educations. This town is the best town in the world to raise your kids and be safe but we really do need some good factorys for people to have a good check and good insurance.

I think we could say those who wanted the liquor here was for themselves, so they don't have to drive to Bowling Green. The jobs we have added are those who are working are restaurants we have added. Look how many we have that can serve 100 customers. (I guess not very many when we take away the mexican restaurants)

Ask yourself how many jobs Glasgow lost by going moist? Answer: NONE. And look beyond a waiter or waitress. What about cooks? Manager? Assistant Managers? What about the local contractors that built these restaurants or remodeled the spaces? What about the added tax revenue? What about local distributors supplying food an goods to the restaurants? I pushed heavily for going moist and would do it again. I'd even go for fully wet and package sales.

And before you start name calling, I rarely drink. I might have a beer with a meal at a restaurant once or twice a year. But going moist is moving Glasgow out of the ridiculous dark ages and making us a stronger city at competing of jobs. You need to look at the long term benefits to the city. How has going moist HURT Glasgow? And let's not even bother with the moral argument as that is, quite simply, bullsh*t and your personal religious agenda which should never drive growth. In fact, it usually just drives stagnation.

And don't start claiming there are more drunk drivers. Check the stats and you will see that we have about the same number of DUIs as before. Those people getting in wrecks are the ones drinking at private parties - which went on long before. Like those two kids recently killed in a single vehicle wreck after being out partying.
a waste of time

I believe that pertained to a waste of time.
Could it be that it was truth, and this comment is also truth?

Can only speak for myself but I don,t believe wondering was in any way refering to the alchol except that it,s not bringing any industry to the community. People we need jobs. I have family members and they all work but I,m just saying one good paying factory would be such a blessing in this town. It,s very hard especially on these young folks to make it on the wages here. Heck even if you work 2 jobs and believe me been ther and done that it, still hard to make it.I know I know it,s hard everywhere but I believe the frustration comes from the expectations that going moist was supposed to help bring in those jobs.
why

Glasgow, KY

#11 Jan 31, 2013
Why factory jobs? I keep seeing everyone in this town bitching and moaning for factory jobs. These are not that great of jobs. They need a mostly unskilled and uneducated work force. Is that all Glasgow is? Why not get some professional jobs here? More construction jobs? More service jobs? Just another big warehouse churning out car parts? Is that the highest aspiration of people in this town? If it is, then this town is doomed. Even factories want to locate on vibrant, progressive, aspiring towns. If your dream is for an assembly line job, then you have little to no aspiration.

He was completely blaming the alcohol vote for not bringing jobs to Glasgow. Which is simply not true. As I stated.

How much of not getting good jobs is due to the overall low education level of people in our community? The closed mindedness? The distrust of "outsiders"? I moved here 10 years ago from the "north" and people still give me sh*t for being a "Yankee". Why would any good company want to put up with this crap? This town is slitting it's own throat with everything from the piss poor attitude, education, and work ethic to the corruption of the GPD and the overall hate and fear of anything new or different. When it's time for me to retire in a few years, I will not be remaining in Glasgow.

Most want factorys because they have the benifits where most other jobs don,t offer them. They want to work you just enough hours so you can,t get benifits.
My time

Agree Glasgow does not want anything to change except what benifits them.I personally live in Glasgow but go to church, shop, get my hair done in other towns. Gosssip, gossip, gossip everywhere you go.I don,t care whosedoing who and I don,t care to hear this everytime I go out. People in this town need to get a life and mind their own buisiness.

Oh wow...that really got your point across. Run Forest run when you can't dispute any of what the other poster stated. Hint, hint...because the other poster was 100% correct and you made a good choice to run from a reply. You would have looked much dumber than you do now if you had tried to debate. lol
oh please

Take a look around you. Burkesville for example. Clinton's NAFTA wiped Cumberland County off the map. Their only factories were gone lickity split! Many tourist travel through Burkesville for their vacations at Dale Hollow. Burkesville won't go moist so the vacationers keep right on going and end up in Tennessee where those adult vacationers can have a drink or a beer with their dinner while they are relaxing on vacation and not have to worry about being hauled off to another county for drinking a beer with their bratwurst. Burkesville is a ghost town and will probably not take advantage of their tourist opportunities until the old people are gone. They don't have even the lowest ranking of things/places...McDonald's, Burger King, dollar Tree, sports Bar and Grill, Kmart, Walmart, nothing.

No, they want factory jobs because they don't need more than a high school education.
no shame in working

Somebody has to work the factory jobs, don't they? Should those people who work in factories and do their jobs and are very good at their jobs be ashamed because they earn an honest living for their families? I worked in a factory for 15 years and those "rich" edumuhkated engineers would have to come ask the lowly factory employees how this or that works or how could the machines be more efficient. Not one of those so-called scholars had any common sense whatsoever. The company was anticipating us going on strike one time and the Plant Manager was going berserk because he knew the office guys weren't even smart enough to turn the machines on much less run the damn things. lol
thank you

I am so glad you made this comment. When I read some of these comments my mind was thinking along your line. I couldn't have begun to say it as well. Thank you so much.
