NASHVILLE, Tenn. (OSBORNE) -- Some Interesting insights into downtown Music City work-life are now available thanks to a new survey by the Nashville Downtown Partnership.

Nearly two-thousand workers participated in the annual survey.

Results show well over one-third of those working downtown commute from outlying counties. Eight out of ten drive in alone.

Safety is a top concern, with 47 percent of workers saying they often or occasionally feel unsafe downtown. Reducing aggressive panhandling is the top safety improvement workers say they’d like to see. T

he good news is that downtown salaries appear to be on the rise. Wages between 70 and 140,000 dollars all rose fairly sharply last year.
