These are excellent points. There are certainly jobs to be had in the broader market. The RVEDP had done their part in attracting businesses. The payscale issue is a sticky one that isn't easily solved. It was interesting to see the Roanoke Times publish a positive story about Roanoke that featured young professionals who moved here to work at a local architecture firm. Not to put this private firm on the spot, but it would be interesting to know what the average salary is for these 25-30 year-olds. It may be very respectable. But, where Roanoke falls off is the number of white-collar jobs paying high enough salaries to establish a solid upper middle class. That has to happen before the image and infrastructure the RVEDP envisions will become real.
Keep up the good work.
