Give it time. Thyssenkrupp and Rydia are a start. The recession is slowly ending, and hopefully areas like Mobile and Montgomery can get back to growing.

Besides, Mobile has an IRS branch, and that's where I want to be :P

I want to catch tax evaders and be everyone's friend during tax time.

Mobile and Huntsville are he only two big four metro`s that are recovering from the recession . Both cities where also the only two that experienced economic growth in the recession as well. Montgomery and Birmingham will be recovering very soon as according to Toomey.

Of course, advancement is always a "good thing" or "bad thing" by the eye of the beholder.

The city is still fighting for the EADS 40 billion dollar contract. EADS promised the state of Alabama that after winning the contract they will build large commercial airlines here as well. Mobile will be third in the world where large aircraft is being manufactred Toulouse,France and Seattle,Washington are the only current two that are.This contract will bring 5 k jobs to the state and 1500 to the city and the large aircraft jobs arent included as with the supliers that will be moving in the area for the jobs.The large aircract manufacturing job will bring an extra 300 jobs to the city. So of course more IT jobs with others like it will be comming as well.
