Local Economy Fun Fact

Posted By on Wed, May 19, 2010 at 12:30 PM

Fun fact I didn't get to use in this week's column about diversifying both transportation options and, to a lesser degree, Memphis' logistics based economy:

One in three local jobs are tied to the airport.

So, no offense UPS (b/c I know you have a base here, too) but I think I have to side with FedEx on the whole strike-limiting labor law thing.
