Owensboro lauded for job growth

The city of Owensboro receives another economic honor in less than a week. Southern Business and Development ranked Owensboro as the sixth small metro city in the United States for job growth in 2013.

The organization says Owensboro has seen double-digit wage growth and rising wages each of the last 24 months.

The Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation says the city and county governments working together helped make economic development possible.

"It's certainly good company when you're in there with Winston Salem, North Carolina and we're really glad to see that," said Madison Silvert, Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation.
