Clayton County boasts a wide range of organizations among its major employers. Like many metro Atlanta counties, its largest employer is the public school system, which educates more than 50,000 students in K-12 each year. By industry, Supply Chain and Logistics represent the biggest chunk of jobs in Clayton County, at 35 percent.
Beyond the immediate confines of the county, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) and supporting businesses employ more than 63,000 individuals, is the largest employment source in the state, and generates an estimated $35 billion in economic impact in the metro area alone. Delta Air Lines, which uses ATL as its hub, is among the County’s top private employers as well as one of the top taxpayers, and as a result has a large financial impact on the County.
