PRESS RELEASE: Salisbury Leaps into Top 15% Nationwide for Metro Job Growth

Salisbury – The United States Conference of Mayors has released its annual Metro Jobs Report for 2015.  According to the report, the Salisbury, MD-DE Metro Area has risen into the top 15% of US metro areas for job growth.

 

In Second Quarter 2015, the Salisbury Metro Area reached and then surpassed its peak employment prior to the recession.  Salisbury tallied the 42nd fastest growth of jobs among America’s 318 metropolitan areas, and was the fastest growing job market in Maryland, the Mid-Atlantic, and the Northeast US.  Of the 100 fastest growing job markets in the United States, only 4 were in the northeast quadrant of the Continental US: Salisbury, Washington DC, Baltimore, and Barnstable MA.  All others were in the Southeast, Southwest and Western US.

 

“From the Research Triangle to the Canadian Border, and from the Missouri River to the Atlantic Ocean, no metro area is adding jobs faster than Salisbury,” said Mayor Jake Day.  “Our job now is to ensure that those economic gains continue and are felt more evenly throughout our community.”

 

According to the Maryland Department of Labor’s Maryland Workforce Exchange, there are currently 3,181 advertised jobs available in both private and public employment in Wicomico County, with a mean wage of $41,728.  The Lower Shore (including Worcester and Somerset Counties) boasts 5,335 jobs available as of April 2016.

6:06-Those of us who actually DO know where the really good jobs are have been keeping it between ourselves and our family members.I suppose you think we would let that cat out of the bag and have the companies in question swamped with applications.

The Eastern Shore is a nice place to live. If you want to be comfortable, get your finances in order and start a business that you have experience in.
