INDIANA (Inside INdiana Business): A landmark study suggests while Indiana has had one of the best recoveries from the pandemic, it still has many struggles to overcome.

The first-ever study from the Brookings Institution looked at economic and workforce growth across all 92 counties and found that while Indiana has the third-highest concentration of employment in advanced industries, those industries have been losing their productivity advantage since 2007.

Additionally, the state hasn’t created enough “good jobs,” which are described as sustainable jobs that pay at least $36,900 a year and provide employer health insurance.

  1. There will always be room for improvement, but thank god I’m not in a Communist State like New York or California that continue to drive industry to other States or Countries.

    Indiana, don’t follow NY and Cali down the toilet.

    Initiatives like Mayor Tom Henry’s Public-Private partnership with Fort Wayne United and their- All White People are Fundamentally Racist- position, is a step towards flushing the toilet….

    Just say NO to flushing the toilet!!
