Cities are booming and job growth is still strong, but a new report shows that many of the biggest metros have trouble keeping up with the rest of the country.
From Atlanta to New York to San Francisco, cities with the most job growth in recent years have struggled to keep up with their surrounding states.
In fact, the nation’s biggest metro areas are in many ways more competitive with one another than they were in 2015.
This year, some of the best metro areas, including Denver, Phoenix, Atlanta and Austin, Texas, are all in the bottom three.
So what’s driving the job market in these cities?
Some experts believe that they are all on the right track, but others say they are at least a decade behind.
That’s because while many of these big metro areas have seen a drop in unemployment, they have still struggled to attract the best talent.
Here’s a look at the states with the worst job markets and where they rank on a key job-creation metric.
Albuquerque, NM – The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, is ranked number five on our list of the worst metro areas for job growth.
The Albuquerque metro area is the fourth-smallest of the states, but it has the fourth highest unemployment rate in the nation.
The job market for the Albuquerque area has been so poor that the city is actually in the top 20 worst job-market places in the country, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Albuquerque.
That means it’s more than 20 percent behind the rest.
Albuquerque is also the fourth poorest metro area in the United States, according the U.S. Census Bureau.
It has seen a significant drop in the number of people who have been employed.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate for Albuquerque has increased from 12.6 percent in 2016 to 13.5 percent in 2017.
In 2018, the Albuquerque metro was the second-largest metropolitan area in New Mexico with about 16,000 residents.
The city also has some of New Mexico’s highest rates of teen pregnancy.
But it’s also one of the fastest growing cities in the state, with more than 8,000 new jobs in 2018.
The population is growing at an average rate of about 2.8 percent a year, according, the Census Bureau, but that’s far from the slowest rate in New Mexican history.
The median household income in Albuquerque is $59,842.
The unemployment rate is 10.5%, which is higher than the national average of 9.4%.
In 2018 the city added nearly 2,000 jobs, with the unemployment average in Albuquerque reaching 10.4% in December.
In 2017, Albuquerque had more than 9,700 people employed.
Albuquerque’s job market is not as good as the rest, however.
The number of new jobs is projected to be just 2,900 this year, with many more expected to be added over the next three years.
And the unemployment figure in Albuquerque’s metro area remains the highest in the U
