Maybe, it's according to what your profession is. Do you currently reside in the area or just thinking of relocating here?

Unless you still want to do factory work, you'll most likely find other career fields in neighboring counties or towns. Not much available here other than fast food, industrual and eldery/intellectual disabilty caregiving. Buuuut, it is a beautiful little town, so there is that. Lol

Another way of looking at it, Greeneville is the kind of town where a man with no education, experience or training whatsoever can do just as well as someone with years and years of college.

College educated males have been fleeing the area for forty or fifty years. The county has been hemorrhaging it's most precious commodity, talented minds, for way too long....now it has a populace that is so ' grunt heavy' that the very population itself is collapsing under the weight of underachieving entitled mouth-breathing fools.
It's never too late to change your direction in life.
Greene County should invest the future of it's youth....not it's bottom line.

Highly intelligent females are in demand more than ever as well....and they are leaving the area in record numbers as well. My post was gender-specific in response to the ludicrous post I was responding to.
As evidenced by this forum, the brightest and most insightful commentary invariably comes from the estrogen-soaked views that are held by the another precious commodity....our women.
Intellect doesn't discriminate.
....as if everyone didn't already know.

True, however, truly educated people would like to secure a position in their career fields. One would think within the county in which they reside without having to drive 45 minutes to an hour. If that is the case most people will shop or live closer to their work. If you don't know someone or are related to someone in the business, it is challenging to find local work in desired positions.

I would imagine that "truly educated people" would have given that some thought before they entered the job market or decided to reside 50 miles from their employer.

Some people were actually born here and want to stay here after college. Others may move back here to be closer to spouse's elderly family. Just admit it, this town is oppressing itself. Keeping it predominantly a blue collar society. Can barely find full time work with benefits without having to go through a temp agency for $9 or $10 to start. Benefits only if getting hired on full time. Most positions get laid off, depending where you work. It seems the way the upper elite wanna keep it.

I must confess, your assessment is right on the money.
.... especially the upper echelon of the community driving it wherever in God's creation they want to go for a country drive that week.
Self-oppression is the damnedest way to describe it....yet accurate as hell.

It is the finest small town on the face of God's green earth.

.... although it's now a metropolis compared to the Greeneville of my youth, it will always be a small town in my heart.

If you can't find a decent paying job you have only yourself to blame....you should have stayed in school.
There will be a lot of seasonal farm work this spring....if you're serious about working and are committed to staying off Topix for about ten or twelve hours per day. We are pretty sure you're used to menial labor but some of us fear that you may have withdrawals from Topix.
Good luck.
Tell Jose hi.
