Owensboro continues to post strong job growth numbers

The Owensboro Metropolitan Area continues to post strong employment numbers based on the latest figures released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.  The Owensboro area had 1,275 more jobs and 1,162 more people in the regional labor force this year compared to the same time last year.

EDC President Nick Brake attributes this growth to expansions at several area manufacturing facilities as well as the 500 job expansion at US Bank Home Mortgage.  He also indicated that construction projects such as the new hospital, road projects, and downtown are fueling the healthly job numbers.
