From first jobs to lifelong careers, retail launches more people into employment than any other. From the part-time sales associate at a local store on Main Street to an app-developer for a major retailer, the retail industry directly employs 29 million Americans, making it the largest private sector-employer in the economy. (According to the National Retail Federation.) At Autry Technology Center, we’ve worked with more than 500 local businesses in our district and are focused on supporting our local industries. A strong retail industry improves our quality-of-life and economic vitality.
Here’s what we know when it comes to retail:
- The retail sector experiences the second-highest turnover rate of any industry, as high as 81% in 2018.
