According to the personal finance magaine, we have 18,583 job openings here that pay 50 grand and up. That’s 17 jobs for every 100 unemployed. Our income grow is 5.6 percent.

Manchester, NH; Washington, DC; Trenton, NJ; Boston and Worcester, MA, Cedar Rapids, IA; Achorage, AL; Harrisburg, PA (Didn’t it file for bankruptcy?); Oklahoma City, OK; Minneapolis, MN; and Boston, Worcester and Springfield, MA
