Economists say Indiana needs more quality jobs

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - The focus needs to be more on the quality of jobs instead of the quantity, according to experts on Indiana's economy.

This suggestion comes as a response to a new report showing Indiana workers' pay did not keep pace with inflation last year.

According to federal data, inflation in the region grew 1.4 %, but Hoosier workers saw only a 0.8% increase in pay.

To close the gap, economists say state officials need to focus on creating higher paying jobs.
