Study Shows Economy is Improving

Posted: Updated:

A study on the national, state, and local economies shows that jobs are on the rise, and the economy is improving.

The Bank of Northern Michigan's Leadership exchange did a comparative study on the Grand Traverse area as we head into the tourism season.

It shows that overall, employment is on the rebound, and manufacturing appears to be the driving source.

The study gives local business leaders the chance to understand where exactly the economy stands.

One negative result of the study showed that northern Michigan is a bit behind in having a workforce with bachelors and graduates degrees.
