RTP competes with high wage and high education locales such as Silicon Valley, Northern Virginia, Boston, places worth emulating.
As far as I know RTP is not a pro-labor (union) area. If I am not mistaken the entire state is a right to work state.

With respect, we are living through a fundamental shake-up of ways of thinking and being. Most of the equations we are currently depending on will hold no place in the future. No longer beneficial to the human race, they are actually threatening our continued existence. Therefore, if one looks for the future to resemble the past, for example for NC to return to manufacturing or even IT, then one invites frustration. If one looks for the present to be an easy time, one invites disappointment because old systems die slowly and painfully since people have trouble letting go of the past and trusting or even envisioning the future. If one looks for the future to resemble the present or past, then one invites fear and a clinging to modes of thinking and being that we can no longer afford.
