Minneapolis third-best U.S. city in which to earn a living
In coming up with the "Ten Best Cities to Earn a Living," Forbes.com placed Minneapolis at number three. Wait. What's that? You're underpaid/unemployed and therefore having a tough time taking consolation in a methodologically ambiguous, arbitrary list? Well, it could be worse.
From the article:
And then there's Minneapolis-St. Paul. Cold weather, yes. Dismal employment landscape, no. The reason is that the area is home to 10 of Forbes' top-ranked companies--and comes out third on this list.
While employees everywhere are anxious about their jobs, they have less to worry about in cities with clusters of businesses in high-paying or growth industries, and there just so happens to be a relatively low cost of living as well. It all adds up to people earning a better living.
