Oklahoma city??? I dont see why we are on that list. Even with a degree, finding a job that pays more then $12 an hour is rare.

I concur, but we knew that I would have a much better chance of getting a job in Oklahoma City than I would have in many other areas. That is why we moved here. The wages do seem low but the overall cost of living is more in line with what people make than in central Florida.

Yea, Orlando has plenty of work if you want to work for poverty wages. Forbes has lost their minds.

Orlando being on that list is a complete joke. Low wages + higher cost of living + thousands of people competing for the same job = employment hell! Forbes has definitely lost their minds.

Those lists are ALWAYS a joke - that's why I almost never put stock in any of these type lists.

Is there a link to this article or the OP just yanking our chain? I find it hard to believe Forbes thinks the employment hot spots of the US are Orlando, Jacksonville and Oklahoma City.

Is that an old list? There's no way Vegas is #3 and Orlando is #4 .

Here's a 2008 list from Forbes Table: Best Cities For Jobs In 2008 - Forbes.com

Okay I just checked the date on the OP 8-20-2006, I should have known better, lol.
