Job Market, Geographically

A new poll done by Gallup (they’re responsible for the most scientific, and usually reliable, polling during political campaigns) has identified that the job markets in the  United States are not uniform. In fact, in the South, job creation outstrips job loss by about 2%. Things are breaking even in the Midwest, while in the east, jobs are losing ground  by about 3%. Things are the worst in the West, however, where job creation trails job losses by about 11%. If nothing else, this proves that the job market is not the same everywhere and varies greatly depending on location. This is something that any transfering employee should take into consideration before accepting (or quitting).


  1. Post has been updated and corrected. Things are worst in the “west.” That’s what I get for blogging before my morning coffee.
