McClean County Young People Climbing the Income Ladder

Last week Washburn hosted a “listening tour” that focused on economic opportunities for young people in rural America. The session was led by an Extension Agent from NDSU and a representative from The Bridgespan Group.

One of their main findings is that Stark, Mercer and McClean Counties and several others in our area, are in the top 10% of children being able to earn (as adults) more than their parents did a generation earlier.
