Wages

The area's pro-business environment and affordable and competitive labor are often the reasons cited for a company's decision to expand or locate in Jackson.  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.
