Economic Development According to Nathan Bryant – Sticky Jobs

Definition: Sticky Jobs

Sticky Jobs: Jobs that feed other jobs and that increase the “buying power” of the citizens; generally attributed to higher wages with benefits, with clear lines for advancement, and require education, training, and/or skilled trades.

These types of jobs are more difficult to move out of an area and are less likely to be affected by things such as artificial intelligence, redundancy, or other aspects of business that make them vulnerable to movement overseas.

Synonym: Primary Jobs.
