Major employers in Pierce County & Tacoma

With about 3 minutes of Gooooogling I found out two tiny tidbits, one...in the Seattle PI.......about Russell.........
and down below is the employee count from a News Tribune article.
Russell employs 1035 in Tacoma...and the employees spend about 77 million a year here.
******************************************************************************************************
from the PI....

"From a Tacoma trading floor with 150 people, the company last year conducted $1 trillion worth of trades for its mutual funds and other clients. It has another 1,000 employees in 20 offices from Tokyo to Johannesburg.

How many globe-spanning businesses are headquartered in Tacoma? "It's not a long list of companies," Kendall says diplomatically.

Beyond the cachet, there's the cash. Russell is "by far the best in Tacoma in terms of compensation" among large employers, he says. "These are the kinds of jobs you want ... they are our magnet in that regard." Employees and the company directly spend an estimated $77 million a year in the city."
"What the Boeing 787 meant to Washington state, Russell means to Tacoma," says Bruce Kendall, president of the Tacoma-Pierce County Economic Development Board. The public-private effort galvanized by Russell's potential move is known as Project Destiny."

From the News Tribune:
Here's who is employing whom in our County and T Town
.....um yeah, 2006....
Military, Government (same thing...) Health care....Food & groceries.....
Fred Meyer is larger than Russell.....but maybe not in money earned that then circulates throughout the community.....

Whatever, Ms. Trickster, you have 774 myspace friends! ;)

Good luck wherever you end up. I can tell that you are a survivor and you will flourish anywhere.

Thanks for posting the top employers. Pretty interesting.
