LEDA study asks ‘How much is Lubbock paid?’

Can a new study bring new jobs to Lubbock?  The folks at the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance hope so. On Thursday, LEDA released the results of a new employment study by Werling Associates, which shows how much salary is paid to folks in different professions here in Lubbock.

So, why is that handy?

Dr. Stephen Werling says, "It helps the businesses in town establish wages that are competitive and efficient and fair to people.  And, it also gives employees information to know what the wages are so they can make logical decisions about what's fair for them."

The survey found that wages here in Lubbock are consistent with numbers published by the Texas Workforce Commission in previous estimates. The median household income in Lubbock County is just less than $42,000. 

Also helping LEDA with the study were Workforce Solutions of the South Plains, the Lubbock Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management, and the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce.
