What Bert Has To Say About Greensboro-High Point Metro Area

The Greensboro–Winston-Salem–High Point complex occupies two counties and is sometimes called the Piedmont Triad. In comparison to the state’s better-known triad of Raleigh–Durham–Chapel Hill, the economy and lifestyle is more industrial and working-class, although there is a strong university presence and a high level of educational attainment. The economy has an interesting mix of declining and emerging industries, but employment overall has been relatively stable.
