Although our unemployment trends and workforce profile numbers appear bleak, the entire country is facing a depressed economy. While we are striving to improve our economic picture as a nation, Monroe and Green County are a resilient community and are fairing better than many communities and metropolitan areas surrounding us.
During a downed economy, it is proven statistically that people will continue to consume food and beverage, and sometimes in a downed economy consume more than normal quantities. Because Green County and Monroe's manufacturing segments are heavy weighted in Food and Beverage manufacturing, we are seeing a stronger economy than other communities and counties of our size. While yet all of our business community is feeling a tighter economy, more so in the retail and commercial sectors, we are a strong resilient community and county and will come through this economic recovery together, stronger.
Join us in a stronger economic vitality with a strong, skilled workforce. Together, we will see improved results.
