NADA-New-Car-Dealerships-Employment-Gains-Driving-Sales-NewsAccording to data from the National Automobile Dealers Association, while dealerships were already setting employment records in 2016, the first six months of 2017 witnessed a hefty 11% increase over the same period last year.

NADA senior economist Patrick Manzi says employment at new-car dealerships is expected to reach an all-time high by the end of this year.
