Rock County has low income growth rate
Director of Research for the alliance, Dale Knapp, says between 2003 and 2007, Rock County had an income growth rate of 2.2%, which places it among the ten slowest growing metro areas.
Knapp says the loss of good paying manufacturing jobs, including those at the General Motors plant in Janesville, is driving the number down. He says the news for the next few years won't get any better until those good jobs are replaced with something else.
