It’s been a good year for Pima County, jobs-wise.
Newly released numbers show the county added 15,000 new jobs between July 2015 and July of this year. That’s 4.2 percent growth.
In Arizona, only Prescott had a higher growth rate. When you look at similarly-sized metro areas nationwide, only Ogden and Provo, Utah had faster growth than Pima County. We spoke to Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry.
