Tribe to get contract with the defense department
A tribe in South Dakota is hoping to get a contract with the defense department. The contract is to build an operation plant in the reservation that will make and test circuit boards for a Defense Department contractor. The positions available will be few in the beginning but many tribe members are hoping that it will grow to over 100 in the next year. This South Dakota tribe is known for its high unemployment rate and large rate of poverty. Even a small number of jobs would be beneficial for this town. Building an operation plant in town is also expected to help give kids the desire to go to school and get an education.
