Shake It Up, Man!

If that isn’t old enough, another headline announced job creation. Shall we play fill in the blanks one more time?

Gov. Bev Perdue on Thursday announced that _________________, a _____________________ manufacturer, will expand its facility in ___________________. The company plans to create ____ jobs and invest $____ million over the next ____ years in _________. The project was made possible in part by an $____________ grant from the One North Carolina Fund. . . .

Salaries will vary by job function, but the average annual wages for the new jobs will be $________, plus benefits. The Caldwell County average annual wage is $_________.

Now, just to mess you up, you will notice the corporate representative in this story was “pleased” and not “excited.” Go figger.
