Economy rebounding, but still needs help

OMAHA, Neb. (WNAX) – The Mid American economy is rebounding from historic lows this spring, but still needs help to continue growing.

Ernie Goss of Creighton University in Omaha, who compiles the monthly report for the nine state region, says there are some outside factors that could help.

Goss says controlling the pandemic is key to any economic growth.

Goss says many businesses are hiring, but can’t find the workers they need.

Congress is gridlocked in agreeing on the next round of economic stimulus.
