Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce Holds Economic Outlook Br - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce Holds Economic Outlook Breakfast

Posted: Updated:

Hundreds looked to expert panelists to learn how to clear up some economic uncertainty for their companies, communities, and small businesses. Donald Coe is a Managing Partner at Black Star Farms; he says the winery has continued to grow, but that's because they're in an up and coming industry.

Experts say there will be about a million job openings in our state, in this decade, but many of those are low-paying jobs. Right now, Michigan is producing college graduates, but even more jobs that don't require a college degree.

Whether you're a community leader of self-employed, each learned that it's important to hang in there, and be prepared for whatever comes next.

Reporting in Grand Traverse County, Sara Simnitch, and Photojournalist, Jeremy Erickson.
