WILLMAR -- Job seekers in west-central Minnesota outnumber job openings 8-to-1, a new analysis has found.

The statistics were released Tuesday by the Jobs Now Coalition on the heels of the state's latest job vacancy survey.

Kevin Ristau of the Jobs Now Coalition doesn't see these numbers improving any time soon.

"For serious recovery here, we're not talking months, we're talking years," he said.
