A Recovering Jobs Market

Like much of the area, this once powerful industrial town was crushed by corporate and industrial restructuring that occurred toward the tail end of the 20th century. Whilst the local economy is re-building, showing 3% growth in 2016 and 4% in 2015 for example, it is not the center of manufacturing it used to be – though around 6% of jobs in the city are in this sector.

General Electric have established a renewable energy center which has contributed around 6000 jobs to the local economy, making it the single largest employer. Ellis Medical facility (3,400) and the local school district (2,700) are the next biggest.

Golub Corporation, a national Supermarket operator, is based in the city and employs around 3,000 at its headquarters here.

The largest single sector is healthcare, with 19% of the jobs market, followed by retail at 14%, education at 10% and food service (8%). Administrative roles (5%) and professional and tech services (4%), public admin (8%) and finance/insurance(4%) are the white collar sectors in town.
