When you read the papers or listen to the radio, it sounds like every company in the country is shedding jobs. Well, there are some companies that are bucking the trend. Not only are they not losing any jobs, they’re actually adding them.
For instance, according to an Associated Press story, IBM is actually opening a new center in Dubuque, Iowa, that will create 1,300 new jobs. Iowa Gov. Chet Culver was thrilled. And why not? Not many governors can tout the creation of new jobs right now.
Of course, while stumbling across the good news in Iowa, I skipped past many more stories talking about companies slashing their workforce. Still, you have to take your good news where you can find it in such tough times, right?
