Samsung Will Continue To Be An Economic Powerhouse, But Solar Jobs Are On The Way: 
After just one year in Newberry County, Samsung’s $380 million home appliance facility has a large presence in the community as manufacturing leads growth in the local economy. Samsung employed 500 new workers on the plant’s opening day, and that figure is expected to surpass 1,000 by 2020. (Columbia Business Monthly)

Opportunity Awaits Those Willing To Invest In Opportunity Zones: "Opportunity Funds are private sector investment vehicles that invest at least 90 percent of their capital in Opportunity Zones. This capital comes from investors who have existing capital gains that they choose to invest into Qualified Opportunity Funds. This allows a deferment on the taxes owed on those capital gains while providing resources to be put to work rebuilding the communities that need it most." (Columbia Business Monthly)
