I do news story searches of new jobs coming to certain cities and it seems like the South seems to have alot of expansions and its widespread in the south. Virginia and North Carolina gets alot of white-collar relocations with high wages and the Deep South gets alot of new-call centers and manufacturing places.

Florida has alot of new jobs coming to the area and it seems to in pretty much every area from leisure and hospitality, new hospitals, new call center, new finance firms and new manufacturing establishments.

Denver has a declining labor force as of late due to the high cost of living. Its become a very expensive state. Most of the new jobs in Denver are high-paying six-figure jobs or retail and hospitality jobs, not middle-class jobs.

Denver has the lowest unemployment rate of any metro in America right now because it is adding jobs still but at a lower rate and the workforce is declining from the very high cost of living.

I think Florida's metropolitan areas are very well poised for the future. They have a very low cost of living, low taxes, baby boomers will retiree wanting a warmer place to live and hardly any taxes. It seems like Tampa is on a major economic roll right now and it's hard to imagine with the advantages it not continuing to do well.

Excellent post. but as far florida is concerned, my sister lives in tampa and I would move around there if I could find a good paying programming job there , some decent IT postings but overall most of tampa's job market is very low wage. alot of floridas economy seems to me based on growth and sprawl and low wage jobs . Scott doesnt seem to be attracting higher wage jobs or much of a stem economy, they certainly have the potential to be a great stem market

Thanks for the replies, I find stuff like this so interesting . It wasn't til I started looking into relocating from my home of 24 years in upstate New York that I realized just how much Austin and Denver have exploded the last decade or so .
I could see Boise and salt lake becoming the new Denver , cheap , great weather and outdoor rec to attract those younger generations fresh out of tech school and company's would start moving into the area

Very interesting topic to ponder! I agree with Boise and Chattanooga. I would add Tampa, Sedona, and Santa Fe.
