Number of jobs created don't tell the complete story when those new jobs pay minimum wage.

Detroit?  Detroit??  Detroit???  Detroit????  The only things "growing" in Detroit are the murder rates, the number of rapes, the number of illegitimate children born, the number of robberies, the number of cases of Colt .45 Malt Liquor sold, the number of Section 8 Public Housing projects, the amount of Ripple wine that's sold, the number of welfare recipients, the number of those on food stamps, and the number of LeBron James sneakers sold, and of course, the number of third grade drop-outs.

I moved to Dallas 6 months ago in hopes of finding a job after I was laid off. So far the only thing I have been offered is a retail job making 21,000 less than my prior position. I have a 4 year degree and several years of experience. The only thing that seems to be plentiful in Dallas are jobs paying 30,000 per year. DON'T make the same mistake; DON'T move to Dallas.

I see a certain group of people always want to be negative, hateful, paranoid, and contradict every article on here every time they have a list and turn in their sounding board for everything wrong in the country.  The Internet has given fools, shut-ins, conspirators, socially inept, and people who have some pyschological issues a forum.  I just come on here to read the lists and I check these comments now and then and it is the same drab fear, paranoia, and hate.  Nothing intellectual or no critical thinking-just their mindless observations and what they think is real and they know for fact.  Funny and sad. 

I will be waiting for the negative, hateful comments for next top 10 happiest cities, states, countries, etc.

Surprised San Antonio did not make the list. Cost of living is much lower than most other cities. Unemployment rate is low and the city is attracting major companies.

All of these cities have ghetto areas that trump any reason to move there.

Detroit is one city I would never live in.  I don't believe it's really growing.  Automobiles do not sustain an economy and cause it to grow.  Sales of automobiles are way to erratic.  I don't care how many automobiles you build.  The other cities on the list are not surprising.  They are high growth areas due to their economic structure.  Texas and California are both so diversified.

This inept author of this article seems to have overlooked the fastest growing area of the United States today....Midland/Odessa, Texas.   Typical MSN journalism....little, if any research.
