Congratulations to the investors of the Brawley meat plant. This is what the Valley needs.
I can't believe the people around the packing plant complaining about the smell from it. Why didn't you complain before they built the plant, not after it was completed?
I guess you thought packing plants don't smell. They pay better wages than the field-burning farmers do for their stoop labor. We need more jobs like this that pay $8 or $9 an hour with good working conditions.
The Valley will grow if we get away from the minimum-wage jobs that are seasonal. With higher-paid jobs and skilled jobs the education level will be raised.
