Butterfield To Tour Boat Plant

Rep. G.K. Butterfield will tour the World Cat boat manufacturing facility in Tarboro, which plans to add 120 jobs over the next three years.

Butterfield plans to tour the plant Monday afternoon. World Cat recently announced that plans to invest $2.6 million and add the jobs, which will pay almost $30,000 a year, plus benefits.

The company now employs 60 people.

Butterfield has said the jobs are critically important to Tarboro, which is located in Edgecombe County, where the latest figures show an unemployment rate of almost 17 percent.

    Butterfield is campaigning already. He's aware that the Democratic popularity bubble is about to burst.

    So is his visit going to speed up the hiring process? If not, then what is the purpose of this story?
