Study: Washington Named Best State for Jobs in 2022

From South Sound Business:

Washington is 2022’s best state for jobs, according to a new study from personal finance website WalletHub.

Looking to determine the most attractive states for employment, WalletHub compared the 50 states across 35 key indicators of job-market strength, opportunity, and a healthy economy. Its data set ranged from employment growth to median annual income to average commute time.

The 2022’s Best & Worst States for Jobs report found that Washington ranked No. 1 as the overall best state for jobs. Vermont placed second on the list. Additional findings include:
