I suppose they found out what the cost of living is in ND now and the wages they would have to pay to get good workers.

Business looks for communities that have to many unemployed people who are ready and willing to work for minimum wage.

UPS so far has not "drawn" from the fund? Please disable their access from the fund so they can't!

What a joke. Whatever happened to that company that was going to build tow behind aircraft freight gliders in Minot?
