City of Fremont Starts a Poll on What to do with NUMMI
The City of Fremont has recently started a poll on what should be done with the NUMMI property. It can be found here.
Before asking a single question the survey takes you through four pages of explanatory text. One of the lines that caught me here is “create new jobs as quickly as possible”. This may sound appealing but it implies that we might want to settle for poorer-quality jobs as opposed to waiting for better opportunities. While the loss of NUMMI’s jobs are significant, we should strive for living-wage jobs as opposed to just getting jobs quickly.
