Those are pretty terrible jobs, to be honest. Not something you would want to do long-term.

Johnson City MSA ties Nashville for June’s biggest y-y sales tax collections gain

Johnson City and Kingsport-Bristol swapped places in the year-to-year sales tax collection tracking in June.

During the past several months Kingsport-Bristol’s year-to-year increases have been among the largest in the state. In June the three-county Johnson City MSA assumed that position.

According to MTSU’s Business and Economic Research Center, Johnson City tied with Nashville for the highest y-y increase among state MSAs last month with 9.5%.

Kingsport-Bristol’s seasonally adjusted collections dropped back into the middle of the pack with a respectable 5.5% increase.

Wow all this is certainly good news. Johnson City is hard to figure out, the median income levels are low but wouldn't the fact that there are so many college students have an effect on that?

I think it skews the median income. Many of those people aren't working at all, working jobs on campus, or work very little. I can certainly believe the low median income in Kingsport/Bristol, but Johnson City has always seemed more affluent than the other two.

The college students do skew the numbers. If you really dig into the data it becomes clear that Johnson City has more wealth than the rest of the cities in the region. Just comparing to Kingsport (which is probably the second wealthiest), Johnson City has over twice as many families making $200K+, nearly double the number of houses valued $300k-$1mil. and a median family income that is $10,000 higher. Median family income will reduce the impact of college students vs. household income as it only includes those who are related living in a housing unit.
