Pensacola Chamber close to 5 year goal - 2 years early
PENSACOLA -- The Pensacola Chamber says they are only 10 % away from from hitting their five year job growth plan.
That's two years earlier than expected.
2700 of the 3,000 jobs the Chamber hoped would come to Pensacola by 2015 have been committed.
Chamber leaders say the average salary for those jobs is around 52,000 dollars a year.
But, some people who live in Pensacola are skeptical about those numbers.
I don't believe that, they got to be wrong some way some fashion...
Its been real tough, even me putting job titles in this, looking for jobs in this, I haven't seen any.
Of those 2700 new jobs, 2200 of them are with Navy Federal Credit Union.
Those jobs will gradually come over the * next* five years.
That's *outside the 2015 goal date.
But the chamber says the *commitment of those jobs puts Pensacola ahead of schedule.
