Government’s likely decreasing role in Spokane area employment

To clarify the first statement, below – government is the largest employer in Spokane County at this time. But changes in government employment, particularly as governments are forced to “right size” their operations to the economy, may see a cut back in employment numbers:

Government has traditionally been one of the largest employers in Spokane County, but as stimulus and revenue for government budgets decrease, employment will also decrease. Some things to watch in the future of this sector:

o Determination by the federal government not to change the status of the Fairchild Air Force base

o Layoffs of municipal employees in order to balance the city and county budgets

o Stable employment by the local school districts
