Hello everyone,

I thought this was an interesting list from forbes.com. They ranked the ten best and worst cities for employment. Minneapolis/St. Paul ranked #4 on the top ten best cities for employment. They have the job seekers per opening at 2.68. The best city is our nations capital at 1.17 job seekers per opening. I know that we have a long way to go and that it is still very difficult for many people, but this appears to be a postitive sign for our city. 

On a side note, I had 30 people through my open house this last Sunday. Not bad for the last weekend of January. With more and more people finding employment that will translate into more people who are able to purchase a home of their own. You can see the entire forbes list just follow this link to the Minneapolis/St. Paul page and scroll through.
