Forbes magazine is reporting a new study by Moody's which predicts that Albuquerque will have the worst job-growth in the United States through the year 2016. The Analysis looks at 200 metro areas — and you guessed it — Albuquerque is No. 200 in expected employment growth and pretty far behind the next last metro — Shreveport, Louisiana
"Each of the 200 largest metros is expected to add jobs over the next three years, but the 10 below in red are projected to have the slowest growth with Albuquerque expected to fare the worst with just 0.2% annual growth. The 10 worst metros are scattered across the U.S. representing 10 different states."
