Several years ago, the state invested heavily in bringing a call center to the Albuquerque area. They said they were working to provide jobs.
That center is now closed. Moved on. Jobs gone.
Recently the governor announced that Albuquerque would be home to a $35 million automobile factory for Tesla Motors’ all-electric, four-door, five-passenger sedan. He said the facility would mean 400 new jobs.
Today, state officials are expressing disappointment that the company that built the first mass-produced, all-electric car will keep its factory in California.
