With the intellectual property drama safely behind them, Jackson County’s SK Battery plant is ready to make a major economic impact in northeast Georgia.  The South Korean technology giant is preparing to hire more than six thousand workers, with the lowest of entry-level positions starting with salaries around $18/hr plus extensive benefits.  The sprawling facility will produce electric vehicle batteries for more than 330,000 vehicles annually by 2025, serving as one of the nation’s biggest manufacturers in one of its fastest growing industries.  That’s why state economic development officials offered up $2.6 billion in incentives, including tax breaks and job training, to lure SK to the Peach State.  The plant will have a massive impact on the nearby city of Commerce and the entire region, and put Georgia on the forefront of the green energy revolution.
