I could be wrong, but I think it was around 72 employees in United's distribution operations in Winston-Salem?

With news that Indiana Republican lawmakers' actions have led a major life science headquarters in Indianapolis to shift more of their job creation to other states (they are now having issues attracting talent to Indiana), could Winston-Salem's Innovation Quarter take advantage of this to maybe bring Cook Medical's headquarters to downtown Winston-Salem? They are headquartered in Bloomington, Indiana and have a major manufacturing operation in Winston-Salem, with expansion plans at Whitaker Park. They are a $2 billion (in revenue) company and the perfect size to attract to Winston-Salem. I'm sure the governor and mayor would love to bring North Carolina Republican lawmakers' attention to this issue. It could open a big door to bring talent and jobs to moderate purple states in desirable regions to move to and encourage lawmakers in more moderate states to stay moderate purple states. It would be interesting to try. I think Winston-Salem has a great business relationship with Cook and I'm sure the Innovation Quarter or one or more of the downtown buildings has space for them.

From the TBJ: https://www.bizjournals.com/triad/news/ ... rries.html The state had very strong job growth from May 2021 vs May 2022 - 164,000 jobs which was #9 in the US!. Charlotte added 50,800 jobs (4.1%), Raleigh added 28,500 jobs (4.3%), Greensboro-High Point added 11,300 jobs (3.2%), Asheville added 8,700 jobs (4.5%), and Winston added 5,400 jobs (2%).
"Even with inflation hitting its highest point in four decades and recession fears mounting, the job market in the Triad's two largest cities is growing, along with the rest of North Carolina.
Nonfarm employment in the Greensboro-High Point metro area grew by 3.2% between May 2021 and May 2022, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Greensboro-High Point, which added 11,300 jobs during that period, ranked 163rd among U.S. metros in terms of percentage growth.
In the Winston-Salem metro area, non-farm employment grew by 2% over the same period, with 5,400 new jobs.
Asheville, Raleigh and Charlotte ranked as the fastest-growing metro areas in North Carolina. Asheville added 8,700 nonfarm jobs, a 4.5% uptick, while Raleigh added 28,500 jobs, a 4.3% increase. The Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia metro area grew by 4.1% with 50,800 new nonfarm jobs.
North Carolina added 164,800 jobs from May 2021 to May 2022, the ninth-highest total among U.S. states"

A $1 million federal grant has been awarded to the S.G. Atkins Community Development Corp. toward expanding The Enterprise Center.

The goal is assisting additional food-based businesses at the 40,000-square-foot center at 1922 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, according to the news release from the Economic Development Administration of the U.S. Commerce Department.

There is a local $300,000 match required.

The expansion is projected to lead to the creation of 50 jobs, the retention of 15 jobs and generate $680,000 in private investment, according to grantee estimates.
