Exploring Montana’s economic future

Montana, as the saying goes, is one big small town with really long streets. The Long Streets Project aims to cover it like that, focusing on the economic trends and issues that shape the opportunity Montanans have — or don’t have — to make a decent living.

The project, spearheaded by data reporter Eric Dietrich and project editor Brad Tyer, is supported by the Greater Montana Foundation.

As with MTFP’s other work, these stories and visuals are available for republication by outlets across the state under a Creative Commons license.

What jobs may come

State labor department figures released in late September estimate 62,300 job openings in Montana each year through 2028. What they pay, and whether you can get them, has a lot to do with education.
