Better Branson Jobs......WHERE?

I'm retired and not looking for a job, but about fourteen times a day I absorb the "Branson Better Jobs" TV ad promising that their agency/website is the obvious source for employment opportunities in Branson.  Well, is it?  A recent visit to their touted website confirms that, in this ostensibly mega successful community, there are exactly 11 jobs available;  most of which are entry level  jobs at or near minimum wage.  Setting aside the implied question as to how this media presence is being funded, the more notable question is.........how viable is the Branson Community if there is such a minimal employment base.  Does this community have sufficient economic opportunity to attract the educated and purposeful citizen base necessary to create a culture as inspiring as our visitor count.
