Minnesota Employment Profile

Minnesota, the northernmost Midwest state, has been one of the top performers in coming back from the Great Recession. It has in large part done this by focusing on those underrepresented in the workforce; underserved youth, and adults in need of skills development. Investments in infrastructure and a focus on exports industries have led to increases in outside investment in the North Star State.
