I can tell you this ...

I know that you are the type of person that will shun at numbers posted by the US Dept. of Labor, because stats can "ALWAYS be manipulated," but you follow up by posting an article from a newspaper. Priceless! lol

Look, you brought DC and it's no where near Cincy nor has anything to do with the topic.

Don't get mad at me because you told your brother or sister that the job market in DC is superior to Cincy's when the unemployment rate is about the same, because it makes you look like a liar.

Cincy
and You STILL haven't given the OP any leads!.

There are differences in the DC/Cincy job market I am not going to weed through the DOL website because I find it a cumbersome site to navigate. Here is some info off Citydata (and for the record I am NOT attempting to sell any one on the DC region-it just worked out better for ME and Hubby).

http://www.city-data.com/city/Cincinnati-Ohio.html
Average income $33,006 percent in poverty 23.6% Unemployment rate 7.3% Population 332,458
The labor categories that dominated for men was -construction,food service and professional/technical
The labor categories that dominated for women was-healthcare,education and food service.


for DC
http://www.city-data.com/city/District-of-Columbia.html
http://www.city-data.com/states/Dist...ia-Income.html
Average income $49,461-in 2001 16%in poverty Unemployment rate 6.5% (based off 2003 and they used the civilian workforce of DC ONLY 370,000 workers) Population 570,898 METRO 3 million plus.
Industries of employment:
in 2001 Service 42.6%, Government 33.4% and finance,insurance and real estate 6.0%

One thing that stood out for me was that Cincy has a black population of 42% but a BLACK poverty rate of 35%- so a MAJORITY of black Cincinnatians are living in poverty. Um no thanks but I like living where my folks are makin money and doing positive things.

Now as for where I live-it is a suburb of DC in MD in its own city. That Unemployment rate is 4.0% and Northern Virginia where my husband works it is 2% unemployment. So here you are literally bumping into HIGH PAYING jobs. You are only unemployed here because you do not have a college degree.




I'm done with this topic. Peace and Happy Holidays. Have a Happy New Years and eat plenty of SKYLINE CHILI for me because DC FOOD SUCKS!.

Bigbluelandrover, out of all of the post you've replied with, that is the worst one and I'll tell you why...


We have this thing called "cost of living" ... what that uses is: income/avg. expense on everyday household items.

I have no doubt that the average income is higher in DC, but I will tell you that the cost of living life is also higher there. Income is lessor here, but it's also more affordable here to live.

I think you're overlooking something with my post. I don't care about your job situation or how long it took you to find a job. I'm giving stats with the entire DC metro involved.

2005:

1 in 5 people are in poverty in DC (made it the 3rd highest in the nation)
3 in 10 children lived in poverty (made it #1 in the nation)

2006:

9,369 DC residents were HOMELESS, a 13.5% increase over 2004.
1,891 people were chronically homeless, meaning they had a disabling
condition and had either been continuously homeless for a year or more OR had at least four
episodes of homelessness in the past three (3) years.

http://www.some.org/docs/factsheet_poverty.pdf (broken link)


I've been to DC. I love DC. It has one of my favorite Downtowns in the nation, but there is no denying the endless rows of homeless people you pass on major streets in the CBD everyday. I've seen it personally and it's a city know for this.

As far as race. That's a personal problem you are going to have to work out on your own. Until you learn to see past the color of people's skin color, you will always have a character handicap.

Here it is 9 days and 23 posts later and GMan is the only one that actually had any valuable input.

Couldn't the other two take your middle school spat to a PM?

OP, I'm sure you'll find cincinnati job market no different than most mid-sized cities across America right now.

Thanks. Not only will it not be any worse, IMO, it may be better since its not a HUGE city and there are areas for work outside of downtown. Blue Ash, NKY, Westchester, all have large business areas. Even farther outside of town, Fairfield, for example have employment bases. Once again, if you have a go get it attitude, you will be fine in a place like Cincy. On top of that, the cost of living is very reasonable here so your dollar goes farther. In economic times like this i consider Cincy one of the "easier" cities to be in.
