Nebraskans who are hoping to find a new job in the new year don’t have a lot of room for optimism, according to the latest quarterly survey of employers in Nebraska’s two largest metro areas.
Mike Lynch, spokesman for Manpower Incorporated, says the poll covers the time period of January through March of 2010. Lynch says, “For those employers surveyed in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area, it looks like 10% of the companies plan on increasing staff while 9% plan on decreasing, so I guess we’re looking at a positive number there but it’s pretty much status quo.”
Lynch says Nebraska’s capitol city is in better shape. In Lincoln, 14% of the employers plan to increase staff, while 10% plan to decrease staff, what Lynch says is a “little bit rosier viewpoint” compared to Omaha.
