New Orleans-Metairie Louisiana Jumps To 2nd On Forbes Best City For Jobs
Written by 

New Orleans has moved up an impressive 46 places in one year to capture the number 2 spot for large metro areas on Forbes Blog’s “Best Cities for Jobs” list. Here is the relevant portion of the story:
 

“There were some intriguing surprises as well. Most welcome are signs of revival from New Orleans-Metarie, La., which moved up a stunning 46 places to capture the No. 2 slot among our large metros. The region lost 11% of its population and nearly 16% of its jobs during the last decade. But now the Big Easy seems to be finding its place again among America’s great cities. Jobs, up 3.5% since 2006, have been created by rebuilding, a resurgence of tourism and a growing immigrant population – the region’s Hispanic population grew by 35,000 over the past decade.”
