Harsh Realities

The population of Wichita Falls is stable, right?   Hasn’t changed much in 50 years.
Yep, you guessed it.  We’re the orange line at the bottom.  Well, at least we’re not losing population, right?
Think again.  The only group that’s growing in Wichita Falls is 55 and up.  We’re losing population in every other age range.  This will create a huge problem is we don’t address it; as people retire out of the workforce, who will take their place?  With an unemployment rate well below 4% and our key employers already struggling to find skilled workers, our economy will begin to shrink if we don’t take bold steps to change this trajectory.
