The State Demographer reported on the stagnant population dynamics and the need to look at new migration to move the needle of population growth and workforce diversification. Most recently, the State of Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development reported that since January 2017, the northeast region had gained 6,200 jobs which employers are now challenged to fill at a time when job seekers hold the cards.
