Will I find a Job if I move to Kentucky

Will I find a Job if I move to Kentucky?  

Kentucky has jobs…

Kentucky?  on purpose????  Yeah, I’ve heard it – I used to live there too… so I understand your friend’s mentality – some people in NY and NJ think they are on the island of opportunity and the rest of the country is a fly-over zone.

Here are some facts: 

#1 sold car in America – Camry = made here

#1 Truck in America – Ford = made here

1 of the best-selling sports cars in the world – Corvette = made here.

Here are some KY companies:

Humana Insurance = $37B revenue

Yum! Brands (KFC,  Pizza Hut, Taco Bell) $12.6B revenue

Brown-Forman (spirits) = $12B company

Ashland Oil = $6.5B revenue.
