How Has Globalization Of The Economy Affected Adair County?
This article first appeared in issue 20, and was written by Linda Waggener.
By Linda Waggener
The Kentucky Long Term Policy Research Center in Frankfort focused its spotlight on this area at a recent meeting, asking for a brief presentation on "How the global economy has affected Adair County."
In a nutshell, this drawing shows the affect. We're wide awake after the swift kicks we've received. We're in pain and the temporary relief of unemployment is wearing off.
Area citizens were going peacefully about the business of living-enjoying jobs that allowed room in the budget for paying on a home, raising kids, driving a good car or truck, eating out and seeing movies.
Then something happened. Sewing factory jobs started falling like dominoes, one after the other. 2,000 jobs, 3,000 jobs. 4,000 jobs gone. Now what?
To schedule this fifteen minute presentation and ideas session for your club or organization, call 502-384-3603.
