The best asset Jackson/Madison County offers to new and expanding companies is its workforce. Drawing from a primary labor region of the surrounding nine counties, Jackson boasts a labor region population of more than 300,000 people. The region is home to a great selection of educational institutions including vocational and technical training facilities, universities and community colleges, and an award-winning public school system.
The region is unrivaled in its supply of high-quality workers with a dedication and work ethic to match. With wage rates lower than most parts of the country, a manufacturing union membership of less than one percent, and the fact that Tennessee is a right to work state, Jackson has the type of workforce that new and expanding industries need.
