A Better Mid-South: Good jobs


Editorial by WMC Action News 5 General Manager Tracey Rogers:

We are all familiar with the pain points in our community.

Crime tops that list, but other concerns include lack of government help, issues with our schools, and lack of good jobs.

So, I was thrilled to hear the news Nike is opening a new facility in the heart of Frayser.

Frayser desperately needs this shot in the arm.

Nike will bring new jobs when they open this $300 million facility on Frayser Boulevard.  And it's going to be huge-- almost 200 football fields huge.

We don't know yet how many jobs will result from the expansion, or when the interview process will begin, but it's all on the horizon.

While I'm excited about this excellent economic news, we need more.

If you have a hard time finding a good job in the Mid-South, I want to hear from you. Email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com or like my Facebook page and leave me a message there.

Growing good jobs will grow our economy and make this A Better Mid-South for all of us.
