Clarksville- Main File


STAKEHOLDER THEMES • The potential influx into the labor force from this segment remains strong with 400 exits per month. Currently, Clarksville-Montgomery County captures 20-30% of those exits, although about half of exiting military say they would stay in the area if they could find suitable employment. • Data show a skills mismatch that could be overcome through programmed training. Most employers within the focus groups mentioned how much they desire to hire those with military backgrounds due to their discipline and work ethic. However, a wage mismatch exists between what these employers tend to offer ($11-12/hour) for separated military personnel who do not have a bachelor’s degree versus desired rates of those exiting the military ($15-$17/hour). At $12 per hour, the available workforce for the top 10 occupations employed by manufacturing industries is 457 people. If more military could receive bachelor degree equivalents while transitioning, their options would increase. The jobs that are available for $17/hour with experience include the following: SOC DESCRIPTION 2017 JOBS WORK EXPERIENCE REQUIRED TYPICAL ENTRY LEVEL EDUCATION PCT. 10 HOURLY EARNINGS PCT. 25 HOURLY EARNINGS ANNUAL OPENINGS 11-9039 Education Administrators, All Other 392 Less than 5 years Bachelor's degree $ 21.38 $ 28.04 30 29-1141 Registered Nurses 747 None Bachelor's degree $ 20.42 $ 23.27 38 25-2021 Elementary School Teachers, Except Special Education 886 None Bachelor's degree $ 20.36 $ 24.98 63 51-1011 First-Line Supervisors of Production and Operating Workers 458 Less than 5 years High school diploma or equivalent $ 16.86 $ 20.45 49 25-1099 Postsecondary Teachers 580 None Doctoral or professional degree $ 16.23 $ 22.00 46 51-4122 Welding, Soldering, and Brazing Machine Setters, Operators, and Tenders 373 None High school diploma or equivalent $ 15.72 $ 17.90 40 29-2061 Licensed Practical and Licensed Vocational Nurses 504 None Postsecondary nondegree award $ 15.63 $ 17.38 36 11-1021 General and Operations Managers 614 5 years or more Bachelor's degree $ 14.28 $ 22.61 54 • Accessing exiting military talent is especially difficult for employers who use temporary agencies. 52 COMPREHENSIVE LABOR ANALYSIS: CLARKSVILLE-MONTGOMERY COUNTY

• Military spouses most likely make up a sizeable chunk of the non-participating labor force. In the most recent spouse survey conducted by the Fort Campbell base, 33% of military spouses claimed to be working, but 59% of those were unhappy with their jobs. Of those working, 42% stated that their skillset did not match their job while 58% said it did. • Entrepreneurs who have successfully engaged military spouses maintain that this segment does not necessarily need to work, but seeks meaningful work that enables them to participate in the community. It was also noted that because of schools, cost of living, and weather, families tend to stay in Clarksville even if their military spouses are relocated. While this information is anecdotal, it is worthy of being explored and applied to raise the awareness of this symbiotic relationship between military spouses and the employers/City of Clarksville.
