Layoffs, plant closures and debt collectors in Buffalo
Buffalo, NY was once a thriving center of industry, but most of the plants have closed as manufacturers outsource work to underpriced foreign markets. As the economy and the number of job openings took a nosedive in the past few years, Buffalo was hit even harder than most North American cities.
In 2008, unemployment was higher than the average for New York State or the nation, and consumers were beginning to rely on credit cards to pay bills and support their families. As more plants closed and the unemployment rate rose, an unlikely source of aid arrived to turn the job market around: a number of collection agencies that set up shop in Buffalo's abandoned warehouses and factories and started hiring qualified and untrained workers, capitalizing on the heaps of credit card debt accumulated by consumers across the nation before and after the economic crisis.
Today, the unemployment rate is lower in Buffalo than in the rest of New York State - only 7.5% compared to 8.3%. Accounts receivable firms are still going strong, recruiting new debt collectors in Buffalo and providing jobs to thousands. It may not be the most glamorous profession in the world, but the collections agencies in Buffalo have made a real impact on city residents’ quality of life.
