Manufacturing leads to employment growth 17 Jun 17

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development released the May 2017 employment figures recently. The Mankato-North Mankato area saw a gain of 438 jobs year over year in the month of May. In October 2016, employment dipped and had remained on a flat trajectory due to available labor force and realignment of employment among industries. Local manufacturing has surged with the ability to implement growth strategies.
