Tampa Bay lags in metro job growth

Tampa Bay Times - - Business -

When it comes to long-term job growth among large metro ar­eas, Tampa Bay is hardly a front-run­ner. Forbes’ re­cent “Best Cities for Jobs 2018” study says Tampa Bay ranked 20th among large met­ros. Among other Florida cities, Or­lando took the No. 6 spot and Jack­sonville No. 14. Mi­ami clocked in at No. 29. The study eval­u­ated metro ar­eas based on job creation — in­clud­ing short, medium and long term — be­gin­ning in 2006. Lead­ing the large met­ros was Dal­las, fol­lowed by Austin, Texas, and Nashville.
