High Quality, Affordable Workforce

Minnesota is legendary for its highly skilled, highly motivated workforce and its unrivaled work ethic.

Our colleges and universities produce a steady supply of new talent, awarding thousands of undergraduate advanced degrees in computer and information sciences each year. We've got a labor force of 2.6 million and the ninth-lowest unemployment rate in the nation (4.6 percent). Our labor force participation rate is the third-highest in the country.

Special incentives, lower business taxes, lower energy costs, top-shelf infrastructure and a highly skilled workforce make it more attractive than ever to build data and network operation centers in Minnesota. Read our Fact Sheet on Data Centers.
