[QUOTE=palmetto defender;4490416]And Boeing thought enough to site a new 6000 worker plant in Charleston. Which will provide jobs for another 5000+. And Boeing just got an ok to build an adjacent huge plant. Seattle is taking a beating. No unions here in SC. GE has a new plant. Honda is here also. Dupont is new.
The better schools here in Charleston are good. One is a top 20 in the U.S.
The rural schools are NG. Schools in Jersey City, Paterson, Passaic, Camden, Newark and Asbury Park stink also. Education uis all about parents. Care or not.
SC has a ton of goood colleges. NY has Columbia and Cornell. NJ has Princeton. There are some good Catholic liberal arts schools in NY state. Fine if you're Catholic. PK would avoid.[/QUOTE]
When the textile industry left SC, it hurt a lot. Labor is cheaper than most of the other states. The fishing is good too:D
