As you drive into southwestern Trumbull County, a few yard signs still mark the battle lines over TJX -- a battle that centers on the question of whether any job is a good job.

Trumbull has lots of highways. Interstates 80 and 76 cut from the Pennsylvania line west; Route 11 ties north and south together. That’s attractive to companies like FedX, UPS and Macy’s, who have distribution centers here.
