Workforce Report Labor Availability Richardson has a well-educated and diverse labor supply. More than 26% of our area labor pool has 1-2 years of college education. More than 54% of our area labor pool (25+) has an undergraduate or advanced degree. Convenient Access for Commuting Workers Due to our strategic location (north of Dallas along major freeways) and superb transportation infrastructure (four DART light-rail stations and city-wide bus service), about 80,000 of the 130,000 daytime workers (more than 60%) come from outside our city limits.

These grants, offered through the Texas Workforce Commission, have totaled many millions of dollars, and have provided specialized training to thousands of employees.
