March 2014-Minnesota Economic Trends
The March issue of Trends features a cover story on the trucking and transportation sector. Minnesota alone is expected to have 23,600 openings for truck, bus and other commercial driving jobs between 2010 and 2020. Demand is growing so fast that Tom Gierok, driving instructor at Southeast Technical in Winona, says he has a 100 percent placement rate for people who want to be truck drivers.
This issue also includes stories on employment rates for people with disabilities, labor market outcomes for people with post-secondary degrees and the six measures of unemployment compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
