New Jobs Coming To Goldsboro

A Goldsboro company says it plans to add 137 new jobs after it expands its body and chassis facility.

Governor Beverly Perdue announced this morning that Cooper Standard, a leading supplier and components for the auto industry, will invest nearly $18 million in the plant by the end of next year.

Cooper has been in Goldsboro since 1984 and added a second plant in 1997. The company already has 373 full-time workers in Wayne County. The expansion was made possible by a grant from the One North Carolina fund.

    Folks complain about people on welfare... Yet we hand out this kind of money all the time to corporations and receive dubious benefit back. $18 million to create a bunch of $14/hour jobs? Just paying that money directly to salary should create over 600 jobs, not 137! As a small business owner, I get my pockets looted every time I turn around, and idiots in Raleigh keeping giving away bushels of cash for low skill job "creation".
