We can do better than “would you like fries with that?”

The Planning/Land Use chapter in the draft 2012 Strategic Plan notes (see p. 16) that over 40% of the county’s population over the age of 25 have some college education… but the majority of jobs in PW County are retail and construction.

The Census statistics note that 31.5% of our residents actually have bachelor’s degrees or higher.

If our educated workforce is commuting to office jobs in other jurisdictions, then PW County would be a good place for some government contractors to open offices in the future…
