I'm turning over today's Jobs Watch column to Jessica Hoch, our new web reporter. She'll be covering the latest in statewide business news, and her report on the future of the railcar manufacturing industry is her first piece for us.
One of Oregon’s most important holding companies, Lake Oswego-based Greenbrier, could be poised for recovery if the Green Railcar Enhancement Act of 2010 becomes law. In a press conference this morning industrial and political supporters including Congressman Earl Blumenauer, one of the co-sponsors of the bill, said the tax credit could generate approximately 30,000-50,000 family-wage jobs nationally and help stabilize the industry.
