Montana Labor Department Touts Jobs Ranking

By Beacon Staff

HELENA – The state labor department is touting a recent ranking showing that Montana cities are a good place to find a job.

The Department of Labor says that Billings, Great Falls and Missoula were among the 25 best cities to find a job, according to a new report by Careerbuilder.com.

Labor Commissioner Keith Kelly says the news is a silver lining in a cloudy financial storm and a reminder that Montanans are fortunate.

The report was largely based on unemployment rates.

Kelly says Montana continues to get favorable mention as place that is doing relatively well.
