Atlanta Manufacturing Jobs with Animal Health & Sciences Inc.

One company's investment will help create more Atlanta manufacturing jobs in the life-sciences industry.

Animal Health & Sciences Inc. recently announced its plan to invest $9.1 million and hire 100 employees in Thomaston, a suburb of Atlanta. The company makes chemicals for animal shampoos, as well as anti-pest aerosols for dogs, cats and horses.

The company will receive several incentives, including $5 million in job tax credits during the next five years and $400,000 in sales tax savings from the Georgia Department of Economic Development, as well as $250,000 from Thomaston.

"A lot of people don’t realize how much of an animal health presence we have here in Georgia," Charles Craig, president of Georgia Bio, a nonprofit organization promoting the bio-tech industry, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "(This) is just another example of Georgia's attractiveness as a destination for bio-science industry development."

More than 60,000 workers are directly or indirectly employed by Georgia's life-science industry, which produces a yearly economic impact of about $16 million, according to the University of Georgia's Selig Center for Economic Growth.

There are currently 300 life-science companies throughout Georgia, with the majority bringing in revenues below $10 million, and 40 percent employing fewer than 10 people. The local industry primarily focuses on bio-engineered medicines, foods, fuels and agricultural products.

The University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention perform ground-breaking bio-tech research throughout the state. In addition, the U.S. Department of Agriculture operates a research center in Athens.

LA Jobs in Danger of City Cuts

More city workers could soon lose their LA jobs.

Chief Legislative Analyst Gerry Miller is suggesting that the City of Los Angeles cut 1,000 jobs in order to help balance the budget. Those positions would be in addition to 761 job cuts already planned by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

Leaders of the Coalition of LA City Unions have already been fighting against the initial plan to eliminate hundreds of positions, some of which would entail layoffs. However, if any union member is laid off, current labor contracts would require the city to provide $32.3 million worth of raises to any remaining employees next year.

The current budget plan calls for the city to lease 10 parking garages and borrow against future parking meter money. Proceeds would replenish the city's emergency reserve and allocate $53 million to the general fund.

Some City Council members are deciding not to include that money into the budget, however, as no lease agreements have been obtained as of yet. Miller says eliminating 1,000 jobs is the only way to make up for that money.

According to the Los Angeles Times, elected officials and policy advisers have discussed varying figures during the last five months when it comes to layoffs, job cuts and transfers:



Texas Engineering Jobs Group Awarded Internship Funding

A new grant will help those preparing for Texas engineering jobs to find internships.

The Texas Workforce Commission recently awarded a $150,000 grant to the Texas Engineering and Technical Consortium to help establish the Center for College and Career Preparedness for the All Across Texas internship program.

The goal of the center is to make it easier for college students, teachers and administrators to request speakers, schedule field trips, register site tours and connect with professional development resources.

"There is great economic opportunity in Texas, and we have plenty of young people with the mental horsepower it takes to complete a high-tech degree, so we're working harder to connect the two," Gov. Rick Perry said. "The All Across Texas internship program is the next step in our efforts to improve the quality of education in our state and further groom our workforce of the future to compete in the global marketplace."

Through the All Across Texas program, 30 companies are able to market 200 paid internships to students, as well as provide them with professional and leadership development and mentoring.

Any student pursuing an engineering or computer science bachelor's degree at an accredited university or college in Texas is eligible to participate in the program. Those who get internships much participate in professional development opportunities, including lectures, demonstrations and mentoring by industry experts.

TETC is a partnership between industry, higher education and government officials. The consortium works to increase the quantity and quality of engineers and computer scientists with degrees and encourage cooperative relationships between industry and institutions of higher education that offer engineering and computer science degrees.

Las Vegas City Jobs at Center of Debate

The future of many Las Vegas city jobs is currently in question.

The Las Vegas City Council is currently struggling with the task of bridging an $80 million revenue shortfall in the city's 2011 budget. In March, the Council approved a tentative budget that would cut 141 city employees, as well as eliminate and decrease some services.

Mayor Oscar Goodman and the Council have been working since that time to convince the city's four unions to make concessions and help balance the budget, in part by taking an 8 percent pay cut this year and next, and by consenting to a freeze on cost of living increases.

Those efforts have so far fallen short, however, as the unions and city officials have yet to come to an agreement. One economist has told the city that making layoffs will only contribute to the economic problem, as will failing to implement freezes on living allowances and pay increases.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, Jeremy Aguero, a principal analyst with Applied Analysis, recently told the Council that laying off employees and allowing wages and benefits to increase would result in the "worst-case scenario."

"Unless our employees who are members of these collective bargaining units come to the table and recognize what we've heard this morning and accept it as the truth and change their mindset, we are at a loss of doing anything other than laying people off," Goodman responded.

"Because unless they're ready to open up their contracts, unless they're ready to make the concessions, which apparently are necessary - maybe necessary evils, but necessary - then we have no alternative but to lay people off," he continued. "And that, once again, as you say, contributes to the problem. That's where our dilemma is."

HR Software Moving to SaaS

Many companies looking to implement HR software are considering SaaS options.

The future of HR software lies in SaaS, or Software as a Service, which requires the software to be maintained by the provider and frees up resources companies can use to focus on other projects.

According to a survey from Saugatuck Technologies and Plateau Systems, HR departments view SaaS as a way to stay on top of recruiting and other company goals, but also want their CIOs to make sure support comes with the package.

"It is clear from this research that HR is broadly adopting SaaS solutions to help them meet their business objectives," Jeff Kristick, senior vice president of marketing at Plateau, said. "It is equally clear that not all SaaS solutions and vendors are created equal.

"We partnered with Saugatuck Technology to explore these issues, and found that not only is HR headed to the cloud, but also that, importantly, HR executives identify 'Service' – a component they find to be lacking in many SaaS HR solutions – as the most important consideration when evaluating SaaS solutions," he added.

According to the survey, respondents believe the biggest business challenges during the next two years will be: organizational change and transformation; addressing the skills gap; reducing overall labor costs; and leveraging technology to improve business performance.

In addition, many HR executives believe their current systems are falling short of helping them meet those goals. Many respondents plan to use cloud-based solutions, including SaaS, to help bridge the effectiveness gaps.
