Wage and Salary Employment

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 33 metropolitan areas are growing faster than Tulsa. There were 406,900 jobs in the Tulsa MSA in August, up 3.5 percent (13,700 jobs) from August 1998. Growth factors include Tulsa’s central location, a cost of doing business that is only 83 percent of the national average, a productive labor force, and vocational training programs that rank among the best in the U.S.

Over the past year, several companies have announced their intention to relocate to Tulsa. Eagle Credit, a collections company, issued the most recent announcement and plans to bring 260 jobs to Tulsa. Other companies that will soon join Tulsa’s corporate community include Griffin Wheel, a railroad wheel manufacturer; Hasco Aviation, an air cargo company; Midland Credit, a collections company; Panda Energy, a power plant; and United Recovery, a collections company. The Chamber is currently working with ten active relocation prospects.
