Confidence Persists In A Solid Nebraska Labor Market

Consumer and business confidence remain positive in Nebraska.

UNL Bureau of Business Research Director Eric Thompson tells KLIN News that their latest monthly survey confirms that confidence persists in a solid Nebraska labor market.

Thompson says survey responses also revealed good news for Nebraska workers.  Relatively few Nebraska households expressed concerns about job security, while businesses reported that workers are scarce. In particular, for the second consecutive month, the availability and quality of labor was the top challenge reported by respondents to the Survey of Nebraska Business. “

Thompson says that those findings suggest ample opportunities for Nebraskan’s looking to enter the labor force or switch jobs,
