KSLA News 12 Editorial: Sept. 19th-Jobs, Jobs, Jobs

Posted: Updated:

There was some great news this week at the Port of Caddo-Bossier.

A German steel manufacturer broke ground on a new $957 million dollar facility. Hundreds of construction workers will be employed to build the plant. When it's all said and done, almost 700 employees will be hired.

Over the years, we've lost some significant manufacturing jobs in the ArkLaTex. But it's important to never give up. And the announcement of this new plant is evidence of that never say die attitude. It's not easy to lure a company like this. We were up against at least 100 other locations.

It took cooperation and money from all involved, from the Governor's office to local city and parish governments. Well done.

I'm James Smith.
