A $5.2 billion plant Intel Corp. is building at its Ocotillo campus in Chandler will employ 1,000 people.

Highly-skilled workers the next wave for Intel….. “Many positions will require bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degrees.”
That is good news that will impact Americans . . . particularly young Americans with college degrees and future college graduates.
College graduates are having a tough time finding work in the down economy today. And nearly 50 percent of them are either unemployed or underemployed. They have to settle for jobs that don't require degrees and are part of the 12 million Americans that still need work.
I am presuming the annual payroll for the facility will be in the area of $50M, most of the monies from the employees' salaries remaining in Maricopa and Northern Pinal County. Thank you to the astute politicians who had the economic foresight to give Intel tax initiatives to bring the facility to Chandler.
