American Red Cross Creates 440 Jobs at Charlotte Call Center
"Charlotte was selected through an extensive process that examined labor availability, labor cost, real estate conditions, and economic incentive climate," Debra Estes, communications director for the Red Cross, told the Journal.
The Charlotte City Council fast-tracked a rezoning change that will permit parking on an empty 10-acre site for the organization. North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue said the project demonstrated the extent of the state's economic recovery.
"We have been successful in recruiting companies to the state because of our team approach, which in this case included job training assistance offered by the state," Perdue said.
