Metro Atlanta Turns to Slums for Jobs
(Atlanta Journal Constitution) — Slums are popping up all over metro Atlanta. And right behind those declarations are hundreds of jobs – at least 850 new positions already announced for Union City and Marietta, and another 500 expected this summer in Union City.
“No one should be scared that a state law requires us to put in our resolution that we have slums,” said Brian Binzer, Marietta’s director of development services. “It’s just a word, and it brings jobs.”
