Question of the Day
The move by software development and information technology company 4th Source was announced Thursday.
A statement from Gov. Bobby Jindal’s office said the project will create 320 new jobs with an average salary of $50,000 plus benefits.
Louisiana economic development officials began discussions with 4th Source in December 2013. The state offered the company an incentive package, including a workforce training program. The state says 4th Source is expected to use Louisiana’s Digital Interactive Media and Software Development Incentive, which provides a 25 percent refundable tax credit on eligible production expenditures.
He was a member of the first graduating class of Alfred Bonnabel High School in Kenner.
Wedge left Louisiana to pursue his career but said the business climate in the state and the New Orleans area has become a compelling draw.
He cited state programs such as the digital media tax credit, the Quality Jobs cash rebate program for companies that create jobs in the state and the Louisiana Economic Development FastStart workforce training program. That program will help the company find the college graduates to fill its software development and information technology jobs, Wedge said.
