    Manufacturing and industrial commercial investment is what’s needed. But wait, our Conservative Republican and Liberal Democrat’s sold us out with NAFTA & GATT. The Global New World Order levels the playing field for ALL ‘muricans. Whoops, there goes the jobs. Keep grazing sheep. The Wally World business model prevails after all with low low prices and low low wages. Better suit up for that minimum wage gig holding signs out in front of the PIzza Parlor or delivering Pizza’s, whichever. Either way, unless you have a Masters Degree, you ain’t finding good liveable wage earning work in these parts. Crack the books sheep.

    Northwest arkansas really isn’t that great for jobs. Alot of low paying service work to cater to the rich elite. A huge problem with illegal workers. Which keeps pay scales low. Sure bentonville and rogers are building up. On the back of illegal immigrant workers. After there is a wal-mart built on every corner we might be able to shop there when were done working our second job.
