We come from rural MS, love it here but there are no jobs!

Me and my husband both mostly have manufacturing experience, not much else. We want to stay down south. We were looking at goin out to Atlanta Forsyth County area but it seems very expensive (cannot find a 3 bedroom for less than 1000). We want to stay in the south. We have 2 boys and are expecting a third, we are white.

What's the best city for us to go to find work

Go right next door to Alabama; there are plenty of manufacturing jobs to be had there, including in all the auto plants (Mercedes in Tuscaloosa, Honda in Lincoln, Hyundai in Montgomery, etc.).

The Nissan plant in suburban Smyrna employs 8,400 and is the highest producing auto assembly plant in the nation, building 648,000 vehicles in 2014. It's undergoing a $160 million expansion to add more than 1,000 additional workers and 1.5 million square feet. There's a host of auto suppliers in the region that supply both this Nissan plant and GM's plant in nearby Spring Hill.

Just south of Nashville in Spring Hill, GM employs over 2,000 and manufactures the Chevrolet Equinox and the Cadillac SRX, and GM is spending $180 million to add 400 jobs to build small gas engines.

Beretta is moving all of its firearms manufacturing (and several hundred jobs) from Maryland to suburban Gallatin.

Under Armour is bringing 1,500 jobs and spending $100 million on a 1 million square foot distribution center in suburban Mount Juliet.

Just NW of Nashville in Clarksville, Hankook Tires is building an $800 million plant that will employ 1,800.

There have also been some major economic announcements just east of Nashville in Cookeville.
