Even when we're not in a recession, we mostly get customer service jobs. What's wrong with wanting more jobs that pay a living wage for someone with a family?

The city will never change its image if we can't bring in jobs that aren't just call center like jobs. While it's great for the 600 people who will get these jobs it's just the same old same old.

We've got a city with an extremely undereducated work force. Do you expect companies to drop hundreds of high caliber, high wage jobs into this labor market when hardly anyone has even a four year degree? Not likely.

We've got plenty of higher education institutions that churn out hundreds of college graduates every semester. These graduates are perhaps looking at employment in other cities; it's a catch 22.
