Haslam Touts Low-cost Labor
AP Thursday September 3, 2015

While Gov. Bill Haslam often states his goal of bringing "high-quality jobs" to Tennessee, a document produced by his administration suggests he may be less interested in making them high-paying positions.
The Commercial Appeal newspaper reports that the Haslam administration is touting the state internationally as a place with a "low-cost labor force" and "very low unionization rates."
That description is part of a request for information posted on the state's website on Monday for people and firms in Europe, Asia and South America interested in representing Tennessee's economic development goals with foreign companies.
Haslam has been a vocal critic of the United Auto Workers' efforts to gain collective bargaining rights at the Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga, arguing that it would hurt efforts to lure foreign companies to Tennessee.

Thursday September 3, 2015

The Tennessee Department of Transportation will halt all lane closure activity on interstates and state highways for the Labor Day holiday travel period. Construction crews will stop all lane closure activity beginning at noon Friday through 6am next Tuesday. This will provide maximum road capacity for motorists traveling during the busy Labor Day holiday.
TDOT Commissioner John Schroer said AAA predicts Friday and Monday to be the busiest travel times during the Labor Day holiday weekend. Drivers can expect to see an increased number of law enforcement personnel on the roads this weekend.
AAA projects that more than 604,000 Tennesseans will travel by car during the holiday.
