7 of them are in California...

The 10 Worst Cities for Finding a Job - Yahoo! Finance

1. Merced, Calif.
2. Fresno, Calif.
3. Modesto, Calif.
4. Stockton, Calif.
5. Visalia-Porterville, Calif.
6. Atlantic City-Hammonton, N.J.
7. Bakersfield-Delano, Calif.
8. Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton, N.C.
9. Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, Calif.
10. Brownsville-Harlingen, Texas

These cities have both high and sticky unemployment--jobless rates that are elevated and, given those high levels, have not fallen far over the last year. Some cities have higher unemployment but have taken it down faster over the past year. For example, Las Vegas' unemployment rate was 12.5 percent in November, but had fallen 2.4 percentage points since November 2010.

Getting all of these double-digit unemployment rates to come down more quickly, says Diffley, is a matter of getting more momentum in the job market, which could help to jumpstart local housing markets.

"In a sense, housing is no longer subtracting from the economy ... but the question is when we can get some gains in that sector to boost the economy," says Diffley. "Once you get job gains in other sectors, that creates a new demand for housing, that helps the construction sector, and then you're in the virtuous cycle."

All the California ones are crap as it is, another good reason not to move to them in the near future.
