The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks the
Tucson, AZ Metropolitan Statistical Area at 163 (out of 372) with an unemployment rate of 8.4% citing statistics from this past November (the last month with hard figures). This puts the Tucson area at just below the half way point between the best rates - and the worst ones in the country.
What does this mean for Tucson residents looking for a job? Business as usual.
