Steel - Come on! Give your head a shake. $45-$65k? For a line worker? In Hamilton? It's minimum wage plus a medium pizza, don't believe everything you hear.

The bulk call center job mentality has sunk many a town in the past and it will do so for Hamilton. Progressive towns go after unique economic opportunities. Jobs that leverage unique aspects of the town and jobs that are tied into the future economy. The bulk employers approach is not going to bring any long term prosperity (I recall my home town of Leeds clamouring for call center jobs during the depressed 80's. They got them. But they left town a few years later. I repeat - no long term prosperity comes from bringing in these kinds of jobs.)

Like I said on my last post - a job is a job, so this is no bad thing. But it's not what Hamilton needs. Not even close.
