Austin would prosper with new hiring practices

It is time for Hormel and QPP to change their hiring practices.

With troops coming home from Iraq, they should offer these people a job in Austin. They are citizens, and they speak English and would put new blood in town. Austin would grow and prosper again. The money would stay in town rather than being sent to other countries.

Austin is a proud town but has gone downhill since 1985.

Crime would go down, schools would do a better job, clinics and the hospital would have more money.

Do this and you will see Austin prosper again. I challenge Hormel and QPP to do this. I’m willing to help in any way I can.
