What is the highest job growth state & rising in the USA at present time?

I'm looking to move out of zombie Michigan in near future. Want to move to a sunny state where there is low crime rate, and I can rent an apartment and get a job asap, as in carpenter/laborer, manufacturing, anything. (Maybe go to college at nights.)

I have thought of Arizona, Mesa, Tucson, but heard about high crime rate recently...ahhh

Really, need some ADVICE on where a young couple could move and find work, and gradually improve, live their lives.

Please, reply.

It was just a suggestion, not a matter-of-fact reply.

Default Have You Looked at Virginia?

I'm from Michigan, looking to move out as well and have been impressed with I've read about a couple of cities in Virginia. Unless you want a higher cost of living and stressful commutes, I would stay away from the DC area. Both Charlottesville and Harrisonburg, VA have major universities, low unemployment rates and relatively low cost of living. My guess is the trees and mountains will also remind you of Northern Michigan.

Just a suggestion.

I agree with michiganbob. The places he mentioned in Virginia could be just what you are looking for. I'm now living in Colorado after 16 years in Virginia. I left Virginia, not because I disliked it, but rather I wanted and needed a change of scenery, climate, lifestyle, etc. Virginia is a great state and it has warmer winters than Michigan. You might also take a look at Roanoke.

Best Wishes in your search....Franco
