Creating New Jobs In The Magic Valley
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Business Plus held their annual board of directors meeting.
The big discussion included how local business can influence the community and improve economic development.
Business Plus plans to bring new companies to the Magic Valley and create new jobs.
"For every manufacturing job that is created, it will generally create two to three other jobs out in the service industry. That means for every manufacturing job that comes to Southern Idaho whether it's Burley, Jerome, Twin Falls, or any other place in between they buy more houses, they rent more houses, they buy more cars, and they buy more hamburgers. So it's really important to continue to focus on economic development and bring addition companies here to Southern Idaho” said Mark Lopshire Executive Director, Business Plus.
Business Plus said, the future growth and economic welfare of Southern Idaho depends on companies becoming involved with the community.
