IF YOU WANT TO WORK AT MCDONALDS OR WAL-MART THAT IS ALL THERE IS HERE. WOULD NOT COUNT ON THE FEW FACTORYS THAT ARE HERE IT IS RUMORED THAT THEY WILL BE LEAVING VERY SOON.

I have to agree. My son finds it very hard to find a job here. Seems the fast food and service industries are the few options and those are hard to get here. I worked in Jackson for a while, and some go to Murray Ky for employment. It is difficult, to say the least.

The community has little to offer young people. Most either leave after high school, or stay and become drug addicts and/or alcoholics. It is very sad, indeed.
Our system isn't working. We keep lining up at Wal-Mart to buy goods made in Bagladesh, Pakistan, and China.
If you remember, when Sam Walton was alive, all of the WalMart trucks you saw had the American flag displayed with "Buy American" on the sides. It is so sad to see those ideals gone. It's like a race to the bottom.
No jobs, an aging population, no future for the young.
Where are we headed?

We own a farm in Mansfield Tennessee. Our daughter tried to live there and came back to Las Vegas 4 months later. She could not find a decent job at all.. Paris and Mansfield Tennessee are beautiful places with wonderful people, but trying to earn a fair living for young people is almost impossible. Unless you are independently wealthy or like us, going to retire, stay closer to Memphis, Jackson or Nashville.

There are plenty of good jobs in Paris,Tn. All over the place. And they pay very well. The Churches here are a good place to start can make good money working for them.We offer a variety of positions for young men and women.

There are jobs here depending on your education, especially in the medical field. There is a shortage of nurses, technicians, aides, and even doctors. Fast food is another. It all depends on your versatility...basically, Paris is a retirement community.

There are no jobs good or bad in paris,tn.I don't know where Mr.Warren gets his information on "church jobs".The congregation of a church does the "CHURCH WORK".Most of the young adults end up leaving the county to find decent paying jobs.Our mayor and commissioners have turned this into a retirement community.

I do not know about the job market there, but I have to totally agree with you in regards to WALMART. The founder was 100% American made but when the kids took over it became what can they buy the cheapest regardless as to where it is made. Sad situation but that's what our country has come to.

Paris is a wonderful place to live, however the unemployment rate is about 13%. If you don't have a job lined up before you get here, beware. The county is content in luring the retirement crowd, and advertising the lake. I know when my children grow up, they will be moving from here to make a life for themselves.
