CNBC: NEVADA WORKFORCE IDENTIFIED AS ECONOMIC DRAW

LAS VEGAS (June 3, 2015) – Nevada’s economic recovery has been highlighted in an article published by CNBC. The article, which heralds the Tesla move to Nevada as telltale sign of future business predictors, emphasizes the state’s dedicated, educated and skilled workforce as an indicator of future economic successes.

“When electric-car maker Tesla touched off a multistate bidding war for its Gigafactory battery plant last year, most of the attention focused on the tax breaks and other incentives states were offering. Nevada won the competition, but it turns out it wasn't the state's $1.25 billion in subsidies that sealed the deal. It was the state's workforce,” the article reads.
