We’re Number One for Working Moms

Accoring to the Minneapolis/ St Paul Business Journal, the Twin Cities has topped Forbes Magazine’s recently released list of the Top 20 Cities for Working Moters.

So what do they look at? Tjey look at cost of living, crime rates, unemployment rates, school systems and healthcare. Last year, New York was number one, this year the Twin Cities beat them out partially because there is a new emphasis on women’s earnings.

Some other highlights:

  • Annual crime rate of 216 per 100,000 residents puts Minneapolis at the top of that list
  • At 6.4 percent, Minneapolis’ unemployment rate is second lowest in the country
  • Minneapolis was 11th in women’s earnings
