The Akron Beacon Journal reports today’s disappointing economic news:
InfoCision Management Corp. is on a hiring spree.
The country’s second-largest privately held teleservices firm, based in Bath, has seen its business demand increase so dramatically since July 1 that it is hiring 700 people for its 32 centers throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, said company President and Chief Executive Officer Carl Albright.
In the Akron area, there will be 200 new hires at its Springside Drive headquarters complex in Bath Township and a center in Green.
This is all because, thanks to Governor Strickland and his Democratic friends in the Ohio House, Ohio has become a place that it is actually impossible to grow a business. That’s why this business is growing it’s numbers of employees by a disappointing 20% in Summit County right now.
”Like most businesses, we fell flat [during the recession] and in this day and age, just to be in business and making a little bit of money and not going backward was good. Finally now, three years to the day, we’re starting to get some growth again. We’re getting a lot more opportunities and things are not just starting to turn around, but looking good,” Albright said.
Even worse… thanks to Governor Strickland, this company is now considering doing something that was unthinkable for the past three years:
The increased business is also going to help put the delayed new headquarters for InfoCision back on track, Albright said. The company announced in 2007 that it would build and be in the facility near its existing campus in Bath Township by last summer, but plans have taken longer, and gaining financing during the recession proved challenging, officials said.
Oh dear, God, the humanity! What of the children? Will someone think of the children? Is there someone who can stop Ted Strickland’s evil plot to bring Ohio out of the recession?
Ah, yes, the Wonder Twins. Thank god!
