Wigan was also a centre for coal mining, while industries such as the manufacturing of porcelain and clock making also thrived. In the 1830s, Wigan became one of the first towns in Britain to be served by a railway, furthering its economic prosperity.

Wigan provides many job opportunities in the public, administration and health sectors. The town is on the verge of providing many new job opportunities with the creation of the Wigan Life Centre.

The project will considerably boost employment in Wigan and includes a commitment to employ local people wherever possible.

Wigan is home to the annual World pie eating championship usually held at Harry's Bar on Wallgate. The competition has been held since 1992, and in 2007 a vegetarian option was added. Wiganers are sometimes referred to as "pie-eaters". The name is said to date from the 1926 general strike, when Wigan miners were starved back to work before their counterparts in surrounding towns and so were forced to metaphorically eat “humble pie”.
