Miami named a top 3 job market
by JAMES MCCLISTER
Miami is the nation’s twelfth-best city for jobs, and has the country’s No. 3 job market, according to a new report from WalletHub.
The Magic City's job market is likely to appeal to young professionals on the cusp of entering homeownership; however, the city’s current socioeconomic gap is still one of the most pronounced in the country.
In determining Miami’s job market rank, researchers considered a dozen data points – including job opportunities, employment growth, and industry variety, among others – and concluded that the city has exemplary opportunities. And a Nov. 2016 economic summary from the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics confirmed as much.
The summary stated the following: the area’s unemployment dropped from 5.3 percent a year earlier to 5.1 percent; costs for food and energy were down; and job growth was positive in every sector except manufacturing (down 0.1 percent) and information (down 1.2 percent), with significant increases in construction (4.6 percent) and professional and business services (3.7 percent).
