State & County Graphs Explained

JOBS AVAILABLE TODAY GRAPH  

  • The argument is that job creation solves broken job markets, but 2-3 million job openings exist today in the US.  Because job markets are so inefficient, many job openings (2 out of 3) never fill.
  • Efficient county job markets help employers and job seekers find each other quickly, efficient counties see job-opening-fill-rates above 80%, not an anemic 33% that is typical.

COUNTY LOST INCOME GRAPH 

  • Lost wages for a county is based on the jobless staying unemployed for 40 weeks - today's average length of unemployment, according to the Dept. of Labor.  
  • If Any-Town-USA has 10,000 unemployed who average $15/hour (a conservative salary), the county loses $240 million in economic stimulus when their job seekers stay unemployed for 10 months.

5% SHORTER JOB SEARCH   

  • Additional taxable income (that pays for retail tax, property tax, user fees, etc.) from salaries of the newly employed if we simply shorten a job search by 5% increments.  


  • This graph helps county leaders visualize the financial impact of making their job market more efficient.

JOB CREATION GRAPH  

  • When county jobless become employed 10% faster, i.e. 9 months rather than 10, the extra hours worked has the same impact as job creation.         
  • One additional month of man hours for a county with 10,000 unemployed (160 work hours per person) is equivalent to adding 800 new jobs.
