Attracting and Retaining the Pittsburgh workforce - really retro version

So this was going to be Monday's post until I got a bit carried away this morning. Since it has some date-specific value, here is something from the New York Times exactly 96 years ago today:

Come to Pittsburgh is the message being sent to the workingmen throughout the world. Stay in Pittsburgh is the advice to those already here. From President A.C. Dinkey of the Carnegie Steel Company comes the latter counsel. He supplements it with a number of reasons why Pittsburgh at present is, and in the future will be, the best home in the world for the workingman.
Notice they didn't say workingwomen back then.

I don't know if you saw this... but it's an interesting article from Canada about "Rust Belt Revival"... and terms Pittsburgh as a "winning precedent" for economic revival.
