The Madison County region includes the Syracuse MSA (which it is a part of) and the Utica-Rome MSA, which borders it to the east. Together, the region boasts over 1 million people and a workforce of over 433,000.
Because Madison County draws its labor force from both MSAs, employers have a large pool of workers to select from, at competitive wages that can be 20% less than the wages for those same occupations in New York State as a whole.
