Telecommunications companies are adding new managers and staff members, which is reflected in recent data. According to The Associated Press, Emerson Electronics is bringing 500 telecommunications positions to a vacant plant in Shakopee, Minnesota. Company officials said the facility will be constructed by ADC Telecommunications and estimated annual wages for new team members will range between $55,000 and $64,000.

Additionally, Emerson is requesting state assistance to build the new telecommunications plant. Local officials are considering an assistance package totaling roughly $6 million that would cover tax abatements and some of Emerson's construction expenses.

China Daily reports that global telecommunications provider ZTE will invest $30 million in its U.S. operations. Business representatives noted that the funds will be used to develop innovative technologies for the telecommunications industry and create new jobs for Americans.

"ZTE is committed to the U.S. market and we are looking forward to continuing our investment and making the most use of local talent to bring innovations to consumers," ZTE USA spokesperson Lixin Cheng told the news source.
