McNairy Workforce Analysis Version 2

Workforce Analysis

Overall Report of Data, Analysis, Methodology, and Key Findings Conducted by: Next Move Group, LLC

Executive Summary

Our research has found that McNairy County Tennessee is a top location in west Tennessee for new Automotive and Electric Vehicle supply chain facilities. McNairy County’s proximity to Ford Blue Oval City, central location along the U.S. automotive corridor, and its strong manufacturing workforce make it a prime location for standard as well as electric automotive suppliers. Next Move Group, LLC was engaged by McNairy County Chamber & Economic Development (MCED) to gain a deep understanding of their labor advantage. This summary will showcase the marketing potential of this labor and will be followed by supporting data.

McNairy County, Tennessee has three distinct labor sheds. To best understand the correlation between wage rates and labor draw, MCED provided us with anonymous employee residential Zip Code data from local employers paying within three (3) wage-based categories: low wage (below average), medium wage (average), and high wage (above average). We paired that information with hard data, analytics and experience to paint a real picture of where McNairy County employees live, where they work, how much they cost, what their skills are, how many of them there are, and how far they will drive for wages offered.

For more than five years, McNairy County, Tennessee, has been experiencing exponential growth in three primary manufacturing sectors. McNairy County has seen growth in Automotive, Fabricated Metals, & Food Processing Related Manufacturing. The business case for McNairy County in the Automotive sector cannot be understated. In addition to your location advantage near Ford Blue Oval City and the center of the U.S. Automotive Corridor, McNairy outpaces the national average in seven automotive related employment categories.

McNairy County has had growth in multiple manufacturing sectors over the past 5 years, which could mean additional target sectors are needed. The labor shed has seen specific growth in Aircraft Parts, Household Furniture, Travel Trailer, Machinery, and Hand Tool Manufacturing. Showing that the McNairy Labor Force is well adapted to various types of products and general manufacturing. An updated Target Industry Study may be a logical next step considering this information.

McNairy County, Tennessee employers pay 42% LESS than the national average for an experienced employee. This is a rare built-in advantage for your location and should be promoted as such. The following is a summary of the population and workforce that can be attained at the three separate wage rates.

This map outlines each wage level by geographic region:

  • Yellow circle – Employers paying below average wages can access
    • Population of – 104,451
    • Workforce of – 44,144

  • Red circle – Employers paying average wages can access
    • Population of – 269,588
    • Workforce of – 118,654

  • Blue circle – Employers paying above average wages can access
    • Population of – 420,434
    • Workforce of – 180,297

In conclusion, nationally and internationally recognized brands General Electric and Phillips 66 know the McNairy County, Tennessee, labor advantage and benefit greatly from it. They can attest to the fact that McNairy County has a tremendous business case for all types of manufacturing. But as our data shows, McNairy especially shines for the Automotive Manufacturing Sector.

McNairy County’s Different Labor Shed Areas Based on Wages

Based on Zip Code data Next Move Group, LLC, received from McNairy County, TN, employers, they can expect to draw labor from each of the three (3) different geographies in the circles on the right with the variance being rate of pay.

McNairy County Population Data – Those who reside within McNairy County itself, rather than commute to the county, for employment include a population of 25,844. The number of people in the workforce within McNairy County is 10,607. Workers who live and work within the county are a great economic advantage, as they allow for the retention of wages and stimulate local markets. However, employers inside McNairy County Draw Labor from one of three distinct labor shed areas based upon the wages offered. Below we detail where employers can expect to attract additional workers from.

Low Wage McNairy County (Yellow Circle) – Employers paying within the yellow circle can expect to draw labor from Henderson to the North, Savannah to the East, Hornsby to the West, and Corinth to the South. The population within this radius is 104,451. The number of people in the workforce within this radius is 44,144. Will employees drive from outside this radius to work in McNairy County for a below average wage? Certainly, but most below average wage workers, based on the zip code survey data we studied, come from within the yellow circle.

Medium Wage McNairy County (Red Circle) – Employers paying an average wage can expect to draw labor from Lexington and Jackson to the North, Olivehill to the East, Bolivar to the West, and Biggersville to the south (not much farther than the yellow circle). At this pay rate, the radius for potential employees grows toward the Northeast much more than any other direction. This is due to competition with other labor sheds based upon wages. The population within this radius is 269,588. The number of people in the workforce within this radius is 118,654. Will employees drive from outside this radius to work in McNairy County for an average wage? Certainly, but the majority of average wage workers, based on the zip code survey data we studied, come from within the red circle.

High Wage McNairy County (Blue Circle) – Employers paying an above average wage can expect to draw labor from as far as Milan to the north, Brownsville to the West and Waynesboro to the East. Notice however, that the circled still does not move much farther south. This is due to the labor shed bumping against the high wage labor shed of Tupelo, Mississippi. Thus, drawing additional labor south gets into heavier competition for businesses needing workers. The population within this radius is 420,434. The number of people in the workforce within this radius is 180,297. Will employees drive from outside this radius to work in McNairy County for an above average wage? Certainly, but the vast majority of above average wage workers, based on the zip code survey data we studied, come from within this orange circle.

Methodology of Average Wage Findings:

We surveyed employers in McNairy County and obtained the zip codes of where their employees live. This information along with our research gave us three distinct labor sheds based upon average pay: Low Wage, Medium Wage, and High Wage. As the labor sheds get larger, so do the top wages needed to draw employees from them and into McNairy County. Instead of focusing on the highest of wages to draw from the largest pool of workers, our team studied the information within each of the different labor sheds to determine the Average Hourly Wage. Studying the information for the Low Wage Labor Shed first, we found that $15/hr. is the best average wage to draw from the Low Wage Labor shed. We applied that information into the Medium Wage Labor Shed and found the best average hourly wage to be $21/hr. for employers to draw from that radius. The step was repeated with the new information to give us the average hourly wage of $24/hr. for the High Wage Labor Shed.

Educational Attainment:

Below is a table comparing the educational attainment for the population within the Low (Below Average Wage), Medium (Average Wage), and High (Above Average Wage) Labor Sheds.  These regions are compared to both the Tennessee and U.S. averages.
