West Virginia Employment Profile

A Mid-Atlantic state, West Virginia has long been tied to the coal industry. Although some areas of northern West Virginia have seen an uptick in coal mining, the heartland of southern West Virginia has been hurt badly by the natural gas boom in other areas of the country.
