Why won't my module show up in my joomla web site?

I created a footer module that I want to appear at the bottom of my webpage. If I assign the footer module to the "footer-contractor" position it won't appear on the webpage. If I assign it to the "start-blankpage" position it will show up. Why won't the footer module show up when it's assigned to the "footer-contractor" position?  Thanks. Here is the code to my index.php template page:

<div id="wrapper-blankpage">
     <jdoc:include type="modules" name="start-blankpage" style="xhtml" />
       <jdoc:include type="component" style="xhtml" />
     <div id="footer_contractor"><jdoc:include type="modules" name="footer-contractor" style="xhtml" /></div>

Here is the code to the TemplateDetails.xml file:

what happens if you hard code something in the template index.php between

<jdoc:include type="modules" name="footer-contractor" style="xhtml" />

Maybe css is not displaying footer-contractor?
