LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- More young adults in Louisville are getting college degrees than in comparable cities. The Greater Louisville Project on Tuesday released its report on education, jobs, and quality of place.
Louisville ranks first among cities such as Cincinnati, Nashville, and Indianapolis with the highest rate of improvement in young adults with bachelor's degrees or higher. But the report found two alarming indicators of low rankings for the city -- jobs and wage growth.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer explains, "That's something that we need to work on. We've got to get what I call more 21st Century jobs here, headquarters jobs, research jobs, we've got to increase the average wage in the community so that's something we've got to work on."
Fischer says the city has been working to create a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship and will continue to do so.
