Labor force

From 1980 to 2000, Fulton's labor force participation increased at a faster rate than Minneapolis'. In addition, the percentage of Fulton people already in the labor force was higher than the percentage for the city. In 2000, 78.5 percent of Fulton's population over 16 participated in the labor force, while Minneapolis' labor force participation rate was 72 percent.

The unemployment rate jumped from 1 percent to 3.1 percent between 1980 and 1990. A similar but larger unemployment increase occurred citywide during this time. Unemployment decreased in both Fulton and Minneapolis the following decade, but the percentages for 2000 remained higher than 1980 levels for both the neighborhood and the city.
