For the first time in decades, the Gulf Coast is booming with manufacturing jobs. While cheap labor and supplies overseas have made it profitable to move jobs out of America, this process is finally beginning to reverse itself. Due to an influx of cheap natural gas in the region, it now actually makes more sense for business to keep their workers in the country.
One such business is Chevron Phillips Company, a chemical manufacturing company that is spending $5 billion to upgrade its facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast. The CEO of Chevron, Peter Cella, explains that with a steady rise in the cost of natural gas, companies like his were unable to grow their profits by staying in the country. With costs down, Cella and his company are back in the United States after moving their operation to Dubai. Welcome back, Chevron!
Right now, there are workers from all over the world heading to the Gulf Coast. Texas is quickly becoming a booming hub for manufacturing jobs not only across the country, but also throughout the world. With this influx of people and money, there is bound to be more anglers and fishing opportunities in the area. If you have always wanted to visit the Texas Gulf Coast, there has never been a better time.
Manufacturing jobs are back. You can kick us down, but we’ll always get back up. After all, this is Texas! Soon, boats will be everywhere, dotting the waters like lone stars. Your ears will not escape the sounds of happy anglers. The hearty laughter is infectious. This spring will be a special one!
