Nonfarm jobs in Tri Cities increased from 2008

A strong gain of 3,100 jobs over 2008 was seen recently in the Tri Cities, according to the Washington Employment Securty Department.  This increase represents a continuous growth in the Tri Cities.

Government money fuels this job growth, especially at Hanford with increases seen at the vitrification site and with support services personnel.

Health services, food processing, construction, finance and the hospitality industries have all seen increases this past year, and in addition to local school districts.
