Rutherford County Ranks Third in Nation for Employment Growth

Employment up 6.4 percent from December 2011 to December 2012

For the fifth consecutive quarter, Rutherford County is among the nation’s top counties in terms of employment growth, according to a new report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
 The Fourth Quarter 2012 County Employment and Wages report indicates that employment increased in 287 of the 328 largest U.S. counties, of which Rutherford is included. The report measures employment growth from December 2011 to December 2012. While national employment, measured by the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages (QCEW) program, is up 1.9 percent, Rutherford County demonstrated an impressive 6.4 percent increase, making it third in the nation for percentage increase in employment.

“Destination Rutherford continues to be the economic development engine for our community, and this report tells us what we already know – our efforts are working,” said Destination Rutherford Chairman Bill Jones. “The fact that we have been a top county in the nation five times in a row demonstrates that this is not an isolated incident. We have created and continue to implement a program that makes ongoing job growth possible.” The employment and wage data in the report are compiled under the QCEW program and derived from reports submitted by every employer subject to unemployment insurance laws. The 9.2 million employer reports cover 133.7 million full- and part-time workers.
