from http://www.southalabamaed.com/index3d5f.html?view=176"Over fifty aviation companies conduct business within the South Alabama Triangle Area. This is the result of many years of aviation growth that involves both military and commercial activities. Virtually all of the nationÂs military rotor wing training is done in this area. A strong commercial aviation industry has thrived in the region. In order to serve these facilities, two college campuses dedicated solely to aviation (in Mobile and Ozark) ensure that a steady supply of trained aviation labor is available. Avionics, A&P certification and maintenance curriculums are maintained. The Sate of Alabama offers free worker training through Alabama Industrial Development Training (AIDT). This award winning state service has been used by all the primary aerospace facilities in Alabama including: Boeing, Sikorsky, Mobile Aerospace Engineering, Pemco, Dyncorp and many others. As a result, the ÂSouth Alabama Aviation TriangleÂ offers a competitive wage advantage to prospective or existing industries considering an expansion. Wages for high demand aviation job descriptions all average between fifteen to twenty-five percent less than other parts of the country. In addition, the State of Alabama is committed to its aerospace industries and offers many financing and tax incentives to ensure that aerospace companies operate profitably."Emphasis mine.SO the lesson is indeed what you said, way back when: "Come to Covington County and pay the local yokels less than what you can pay anywhere else." What is so amazin' is that this is our own "County Fathers" putting this out. Look at who is on this commission http://www.southalabamaed.com/index4fe6.html?view=196,197,198,199Mayors, Bankers, CEOs, and then click on "Wage Advantage" http://www.southalabamaed.com/index4945.html?view=181 and they give you a specific list of how much less you have to pay the yokels:
5-State Average Includes: Boca Raton, FL; Dallas, TX; Hartford, CT; Seattle, WA; Wichita, KS.NOW remember that a median salary is the middle point, NOT the average!!!! SO when the mayor says "We are not talking about minimum wage jobs either. We are talking about starting pay at $16 and on up to $35 per hour." See, Andalusia Star News, 6/3/06, http://www.andalusiastarnews.com/articles/2006/06/03/commentary/other%20views/556opin.txt ,he is full of ........................matter because his own Economic Commission web site is telling the aviation industry they can get a "competive advantage" by coming to Covington County.Pretty bad.
