REPORT: Jobs growing in Kentucky; wallets are not

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jobs are growing in Kentucky, but wallets may not be.

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce says Kentucky is above the national average for job growth. The problem is that many of the state's jobs are paying below the national average.

The national average for wage growth is about 23 percent since the recession.

Kentucky's best region for growth is Northern Kentucky.
