A modest proposal for bringing jobs to Gulf County

3) There are no competing employers for Gulf County's low-wage, low-skilled workers.

Over 70 percent of Gulf County's workforce lack a military-acceptable high school diploma. Members of Gulf County's resident workforce have no interest in upgrading their skill-sets, as Eastern Shipbuilding can testify.

4) Taxpayers of Gulf County will financially support low-wage companies that employ local residents.

Gulf County is a Christian community. Residents and workers are waiting for Rapture and have no interest in investing in their children's or community's future. Residents of Gulf County like to see, taste and smell their local businesses. It tells them the jobs are still there.

These considerations should attract circa 1994 industrial companies and their jobs to Gulf County.
