Craig Shaul, from the Idaho Department of Labor, and Richard Bonney, CEO of the Meridian Chamber of Commerce, will share insights on the rapid economic expansion in Southern Idaho and the potential impacts on compensation. 

Idaho’s economy has grown substantially over the past few years. Currently, its primary challenge is the supply of workers with the right skills to fuel its appetite and velocity of economic expansion. Southwest Idaho has been the key driver in this growth. How has it fared during this time and what has been the effect on wages and incomes? We will examine the most recent data from the Idaho Department of Labor, Bureau of Economic Analysis and other sources to answer this question.
