The economy's recovering, and we live in a great place to find work.
The economy's recovering, and we live in a great place to find work.

The president said last night that after the worst recession most of us have ever known, the economy is growing again. And Michele Bachmann helpfully showed us that unemployment is dropping.

Maybe that has something to do with why Minneapolis is now ranked by Monster as having the 6th hottest job market in the country.

Monster said it based the rankings on the relative abundance of job openings in each city for local residents seeking work. Senior vice president Jesse Harriott said the recovery has especially helped free up money for investment in IT. He also expects continued growth in the health care sector as long-in-the-tooth boomers require more and more services.

No, we can't lead every national list. So it is nice to know that we're the cleanest, most most relaxed metro in the country, where the business environment is pretty good, and you can find a relatively cheap place to live. And -- we can never say it enough -- we're the most bike-friendly city in the country.
