Wow, this is GREAT news! Those will be high-paying jobs. Maybe we will make stuff in this country in 20 years after all. People who cannot realistically get college degrees need middle class jobs they can do with their hands. Kudos to the politicians for working on this.

Not all of this will be "high paying". The pay scale will very from the line workers who will be doing repetitive work all the way up to the salesmen and ceo's. And that is the great part of a company like this coming into town. It will hire hand fulls of people from all skill levels. Not just line workers and not just upper management types.

It could just as easily be gone like a fart in the wind heading somewhere else. Hey Bill, just how much are we going to take it in the backside on taxes with this one???
