OK, it’s no Audi plant, but it’s rumored to be 1800 jobs with an average salary of $60,000. Not too shabby if that holds up:
A medical and
health care company plans to open a plant in north Georgia that would create 1,800 new jobs.
Channel 2’s Richard Elliot spoke with a member of state government very familiar with the
plan, who said this is going to be a huge economic boost for the state of Georgia.
The lawmaker said Baxter International will locate a big production center in Newton County, not far from the city of Covington.
Baxter is a maker of vaccines and medical devices.
Channel 2 political reporter Lori Geary worked the story all day Wednesday and tweeted about a major jobs announcement earlier in the day.
She confirmed that the production facility will pay a median salary of about $60,000 a year for the new 1,800 jobs.
So, some good news.
