The American economy might have not added any jobs in August, but for a handful of cities, the last year has been a period of substantial job growth, as represented in the below infographic byVisual.ly. It’s in Ohio, in fact, that two cities have experienced job growth of over 8 percent. The small city of Pascagoula, Mississippi has unfortunately seen the worst percentage drop of any city in the country.
Nationally, the jobs crisis remains as prevalent as it was one year ago. Indeed, the the unemployment rate has only dropped to 9.1 percent from 9.6 percent in the same month of last year. So really, there remains only one number that truly matters right now: 13.9 million — the number of unemployed people in America today.
