It never gets old ... hearing about the booming economy and job market in Kankakee County. And the Kankakee County Board (Tuesday) heard a most-encouraging pep talk from Tim Nugent, the CEO of the Economic Alliance of Kankakee County.
He’s been getting the word out about the positive numbers – Kankakee County is number one in the state in terms of job growth. CSL Behring and Nucor Steel lead the way in business expansions and job creation ...
"We hope it continues and then the solar farm developments offer even more good-paying jobs," Nugent said. "The hope is that solar farms get built, adding more to the economy."
The job growth numbers show Kankakee has been number #1 in 2017 and 2018. CSL Behring’s expansion project is the largest pharmaceutical expansion in the world.
