The Warren County Economic Development Corp. is working with Iowa Workforce Development's Regional Research Bureau to complete a study that will examine the labor force from which Warren County employers draw their employees, based on the number of workers who commute to the county. The study will help existing and potential businesses to better understand the size and characteristics of the area's labor force regardless of political boundaries. Once a laborshed area is determined, a confidential household telephone survey will be conducted to discover employment status, current and desired wages, current and desired benefits, education level and type of occupation. The results of the laborshed analysis will be available here. For more information, contact Ryan Murphy at 281-7505 or Jason White at 961-1067.
