Abstract:
North Carolina's one hundred largest employers for 2005 range from Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., ranked first, with over 47,845 workers, to The Gap, Inc., which, with 1,870 employees, was ranked at one hundred. The companies are either privately, publicly, or foreign owned. They offer such products and services as textiles, wood products, meat processing, and telecommunications. As manufacturing continues to decline and move out of North Carolina, more service sector jobs, which are not portable, were added to the list.
