Fact of the Week #91: The arts put people to work. By investing in the arts, the public sector is fostering a skilled work force of creative occupations that contribute to economic productivity. The arts employ artists, managers, marketers, technicians, teachers, designers, carpenters, and workers in a wide variety of other trades and professions.  Like other occupations, arts jobs help to pay mortgages and send children to college. The 905,000 creative businesses in the United States employ 3.35 million workers.  NASSA.org
