but big companys move to these areas to break the big city unions or the big city wages,,,and the problem with west plains is,,,they dont want anything bigger or better,,,they have what the land owners want,,,and until their all dead and gone and their kids sell out after they screw up what their daddys built,,,things wont grow,,,cuz west plains does have the rail road,,,the hwy rout between ks city and memphis and beyond,,,so thats an old worn out excuse buisness has been useing round here for yrs when you ask why their prices are so high,,,<quoted text>
Caterpillar is the most recent one that made capital investments in recent times since manufacturing began an increasing trend of outsourcing. Southwest truck body already had some facilities. Regal Beloit wouldn't locate here in this labor /business environment. Invensys? There is not a large pool of skilled labor, inadequate infrastructure or transportation networks and facilities. there are literally thousand of communities offering land, facilities, tax incentives etc to attract industry...communities with more labor pool, more roads, more rail facilities, more water and sewer, greater internet and electrical grids, and they have a culture in surrouning town. Why on earth would a sensibly managed corporation do business in West Plains. 1. They already have a facility in place. 2 Cheap labor 3. Some of them have humanit...Regal Beloit closed Springfield facitly...where workers could disperse into the cities other employment opportunities...here, it would kill them, there is no where to go.
