Last night WBOC did a couple interviews with select people THEY wanted you to hear from. The first was Memo Diriker who stated, "the trend is positive for business and jobs". REALLY, SERIOUSLY?
WOW, I don't know about YOU but perhaps IF WBOC had actually PUBLISHED the monthly Jobs Reports SBYNews has been publishing for YEARS, they just might have a clue as to how much BS that statement actually is.
Nevertheless, it doesn't fit WBOC's agenda, so you get what you get.
Then there was the interview with Wayne Strausburg. He said that Labinol in Texas is doing the same work down there as they are in Salisbury. NOT TRUE! In fact, if Wayne, Jimmy and Mikulski had done any real research they would have learned that there's nowhere near enough room in the Texas facility to relocate what they do in Salisbury down there.
I've been told the French companies main goal is to ultimately relocate the majority of their company to Mexico where the pay scale is much lower.
It seems everyone is squirming on this matter, especially Ireton and Mikulski. They keep talking about 650 jobs lost when it's really 975. Nevertheless, there will be an investigation into this whole matter.
In the mean time, Wicomico County is NOT on the rise business wise. Sure Wayne, there are a LOT of opportunities here and like I've been saying for YEARS, the rest of the world just needs to know we're here. I wonder where he got that from last night?
