Jobs keep coming, but TN companies struggle to find qualified workers

UBS to add 1,000 new jobs in Nashville

The jobs are coming; the jobs are here.

Gov. Bill Haslam has been trekking across Middle Tennessee making one new jobs announcement after another during the past few weeks, and the numbers are mounting, into the thousands.

“In just the past six or seven weeks, we’ve had three companies announce expansions that will bring at least 1,000 jobs each,” Haslam said this week during one of those events at auto supplier Calsonic Kansei North America in Shelbyville.

Chris Taylor works at the Gap Inc. distribution center in Gallatin, which is adding 90 jobs.
