Study: Birmingham is the hardest city in Southeast to find a job

According to this report: Birmingham is the hardest big city in the Southeast to find a job.

The Magic City ranks 42nd among the nation’s top 50 metropolitan areas in the latest report. Birmingham moved down one position from the previous rankings but trails Southern peers New Orleans (18th), Nashville (22nd), Atlanta (25th), Charlotte (28th), Tampa (33rd), Jacksonville, Fla. (37th), Memphis (40th) and Orlando (41st).

If they think finding a job is hard in Birmingham, try finding one in east, central Alabama where our unemployment rates are 50% to 70% greater than the Jefferson County metro area.
