When we add jobs, you don't hear about it as much...

Bausch and Lomb will be adding 200 jobs in an expansion. This is a good thing, in more ways than just those 200 jobs. These little additions to the local economy add up in big ways. While I don't want to go off the economics deep-end on you, it is important to remember that job quantity is only one part of the employment function. Job quality plays in as well. In this case, B&L's move is helping to cement the goal of turning Rochester into a Tech Center.

So that's good. There's an old Irish saying, that the journey of a 1000 miles starts with the first step.
