JEFFERSON, GA (CBS46) -

Governor Nathan Deal visited an Amazon Fulfillment Center in Jefferson to see how the facility has put Georgians to work, but he also threw out hints as to why Amazon should pick his state for their second headquarters. 

Governor Deal said facilities like this verify that Amazon already realizes Georgia is a thriving state. A state where the company can find the workforce they need.  

"To acquire greater skills that will make them better employees that will allow them to move up in the employment chain within their amazon system but even if they don't they will have the skills to be marketable," said Deal.

CBS46 reporter Jasmina Alston was able to tour the center, which has been in Georgia over a year and employs thousands.
