Nonprofits employ more than ten percent of employees in western Pennsylvania; study reflects the growing economic impact of nonprofits.
"Allegheny County's community nonprofits pay $1.8 billion in annual wages to more than 75,000 employees, representing almost 11 percent of the workforce countywide, a study obtained by the Tribune-Review found.
'The research spotlights the increasing prominence of small- and mid-sized nonprofit organizations in the regional economy. It shows community nonprofits employ more people than Allegheny County's manufacturing (36,445 jobs) and construction (27,899) industries combined." --Natasha Lindstrom, TribLIVE News
