The Commonwealth's town with the highest unemployment might see some job growth in the near future. 

MVP International officials say they are  considering opening a plant in Fulton which could employ up to 150 people. MVP makes scented candles and currently employs 126 people in its Mayfield plant.  The state approved $2 million in tax incentives yesterday for the plant to be paid over 15 years should MVP choose to construct the facility.  The Fulton area has experienced a number of plant closures in the past two years including the the Ferry-Morse Seed Company plant last May.
