Wow! I would love to work for Toyota, but I grew up in Brandon, MS. That is a bit too much of a drive for me. Besides, if I moved back to Mississippi, I would want to live in Bay St. Louis on the coast next to my family.
Are you going to look at employment with Toyota (read: get deals on Toyota stuff
)? That is really good news anyway. Mississippi isn't doing so well after the Casinos were wiped out during Hurricane Katrina. That and the Nissan Plant in Canton isn't producing as much as they expected. Mississippi needs a break, and hopefully Toyota can give it to them! Great news!
