QOTD: Jobs Vs NIMBYs
We reported yesterday about the resistance Ford is facing toward building a new plant. So naturally, I wanted to hear what you think.
To me, there's a lot of contradictory stuff at play. On the one hand, the country could always use more manufacturing jobs. On the other, I understand why someone living in a quiet, peaceful rural area wouldn't want a large plant near their home. There are also environmental concerns to think of, as well.
So, what say you, B and B? Are locals being unreasonable or should Ford try to find a spot where either the locals are offering less resistance -- or there are fewer locals in the first place?
You know the drill. Sound off below.
