Yahoo to build $100M data center and add new jobs, despite financial woes

Yahoo on Friday forged ahead with a deal to build both a customer care center and a data center in Nebraska, even after reporting a 64 percent drop in third-quarter profits on Monday of the same week.

Slated to open some time in 2009, the customer care center will be located in a business park in western Omaha, and the data center in a free-standing building in La Vista, Nebraska.
Yahoo is making an initial investment of $100 million in the La Vista data center, and initial hires are expected to include about 50 people, each paid in the $50,000 to $60,000 range.
