The Best U.S. Cities For Future Job Growth
Florida was one of the hardest hit areas during the financial crisis with the boom-and-bust economy walloped by the collapse of the housing market. Home prices fell more than 50% from their 2006 peaks in many metro areas and foreclosures soared. The collapse of the Florida economy pushed the unemployment rate north of 11% in 2009 and 2010. But the boom days are back in Florida with construction in full force and tourism at record levels. Unemployment dipped below 4% last month for the first time since 2007. The outlook is bright as well. Four Florida metros rank among the 10 areas with the highest projected job growth rates over the next three years, according to data from Moody’s Analytics.
