Employment

Northeastern Nevada is plagued with a very GOOD problem – we simply have more jobs than we have people. In 2018, unemployment dipped just below 3% and has remained steady ever since. At the same time, new mining projects have either come online or are preparing to go into production in the near future while supporting business and industry are commencing in expansion or relocation. The result, recent graduates find job placement here at a rate of +96%, skilled workers practically pick who they want to work for, and nearly every employee is paid a wage that is well over the Nevada average.
