COLUMN: New factory not just a cosmetic changeExcerpt:
"Cosmetics maker Oxygen Development expects to employ 800 people - more than Scripps Florida. Only this project isn't costing the county a dime. Oxygen is making the move from Deerfield Beach in Broward County to Palm Springs because of federal stimulus money."
"Palm Springs, a central-county town of 14,500 with an aggressive approach to growth, is hurting in a county with an 11.3 percent jobless rate. With construction scheduled to start in January and take at least 18 months, the plant is unlikely to open before 2011. When it does, it could provide the kind of job base that is so rare in South Florida and America, for that matter."
Read on and cry. I wonder how tall their plant will be?
