Skagit County Labor Force
The Skagit County civilian labor force was benchmarked at 58,460 in 2009. For the three months ending in November 2010, the Skagit County year-over-year growth in private sector jobs was positive. Skagit is the only northwest county to earn this distinction. Total payrolls in Skagit County have been dragged down by weakness in the local government sector, but that was not enough to cause a loss in total jobs when including government jobs over these three months. Clearly, there is something special about the economic dynamism of Skagit County!
