Nearly 20 local and area businesses gathered at the Marriott in Boone Friday for a High Country Job Fair, put on by the Workforce Development Board, NC Division of Workforce Solutions, and CCC&TI.  A crowd of job seekers hear from possible employers, and congresswoman Virginia Foxx was there talking jobs and the economy, "The headline I saw this morning said our workforce is the same size as in 1979 right now. If we really want to bring jobs back to the United States, what we have to do is make it easier for employers to do business here.  We need to lower the tax rate on corporations, we need to reduce rules and regulations.  That would do as much as reducing the tax rate."
