Flint, Mich., and Lincoln, Neb., have something in common: They are the two cities in the U.S. with the greatest difference between how many of their employers expect to add workers in the next quarter and how many expect to let them go. But that's very good news in Lincoln, and very bad news in Flint.

In Lincoln, 21% of employers plan to hire soon, and only 4% plan to fire--a net difference of 17 percentage points. Pretty much the opposite is true in Flint, where 26% of employers are planning cuts to payroll and 9% are expecting to hire.

I get so irritated by Forbes making us look at stupid pictures of each city one by one. They should simply have a graph or chart ranking the cities.

I feel for Flint. I just flew in there a couple of weeks ago, and it's just sad. Great people, with not a lot of hope unless they leave the area. I truly hope they can turn it around.

The difference between there and Western Michigan felt so profound, it might as well be a different State.

I agree. The trouble with Flint, is that it's needed "turning around" now for going on thirty years and it just hasn't happened...
