Jobs, jobs, jobs 

Brad Gregg

Well get off the couch, buddy, because we all know that
you’ve simply been enjoying those Maury reruns. (Not that we can
blame you — what’s more entertaining than a woman terrified of cotton
balls?)

According to Gallup’s Job Creation Index, Oklahoma City has been
ranked the nation’s top city for job creation. It’s about time the
Sooner State made it to No. 1 for something that didn’t involve
incarcerating women.

The index compared the hiring and layoff rates of the country’s 50 biggest metro areas.

Of those surveyed, 37 percent of employers said they were expanding, while only 12 percent said they were laying off employees.

This
gave OKC a job creation score of 21, which is not only an 8-point
increase from 2010, but 12 points higher than the national job creation
score.

Winning!
