Rock Springs Workforce Efforts Continue

Laramie, WY – Rock Springs officials say that efforts to attract a workforce are yielding better results, but housing is still a concern. Sweetwater County Economic Development Director Pat Robbins says in the past year the county has created a number of new jobs outside of the energy industry. Robbins says they held off on recruiting new workers, until they could start making more homes available for future employees. But she says they are making progress in that area and they hope to start attracting more workers early next year.
