It's cool, we don't need any more jobs

Now that the downtown's so new and shiny we're supposed to look much better to big companies and employers, right? Right? I guess not, since we can't even beat out San Antonio.

According to this story in the Memphis Business Journal, the world's largest medical device company, Medtronic, will be bringing roughly 1,300 jobs to the Texas site after carefully considering a bunch of other towns that I guess aren't trying too hard.

"We had to beat Austin and then we had to beat Kansas City," says San Antonio's Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff, who according to the story worked on bringing the medical device company to his city for more than a year.

But hey, it's cool. It's not like we've got this huge surplus of laid off people looking for work.
