Austin, Texas: A Great Place to Work, But Where Do You Want to Live?

March 11, 2020 12:07 pm

For the second consecutive year, Austin topped the list as the hottest U.S. job market in 2019, according to a Wall Street Journal. Nashville jumped to the number two spot from seventh. Both cities anchor metropolitan areas of around two million people.

According to a recent article, the Journal worked with Moody’s Analytics to assess the labor market in 381 metro areas. Each region was ranked on five metrics: the unemployment rate, labor-force participation rate, job growth, labor-force growth and wage growth. An average of those rankings was used to determine the hottest labor market in the U.S. for metro areas with more than one million people, and separately for less populous regions.

The Journal notes that “Austin—a tech hub and college town—remains attractive to workers thanks to low unemployment and high wage growth. Apple Inc. was among companies bringing jobs to Austin. In 2019, it started construction of a $1 billion corporate campus with a capacity for up to 15,000 employees. It already has 7,000 workers in Austin.”

This is great news for the already robust economy in and around the Capital of Texas. Job growth means wage growth. However, if you ask the residents of MorningStar (many of whom work in the digital economy) about the best place to LIVE in the area, they will eagerly point to their own backyards!
