Those staying in corporate housing in Joliet, IL for business reasons might appreciate some information about the city’s business environment. Joliet experienced a significant economic catastrophe in the 1980s and has since been on the road to recovery. Prior to the meltdown that saw unemployment reach 85% in the city, Joliet was prospering in manufacturing and operations as a steel town. Because of its close proximity to Chicago, Joliet has since repositioned and re-tasked itself as an entertainment getaway for Chicagoans and larger metropolises in the area. The primary economic driver in the city now is the numerous casinos and cabarets that dot the cityscape.
