Local report lists top jobs for families

Positions in maintenance and repair, business and administrative, and health care occupations are the best jobs for supporting a family in Nebraska, according to a report released Dec. 2. The Nebraska Appleseed Center for Law in the Public Interest based its findings on wage rate, projected growth potential, benefit eligibility and accessible education requirements. The report projects that 66 percent of all jobs in Nebraska will require some education beyond high school by 2018. Currently, only 36.5 percent of the state's residents have at least an associate's degree.
