This is certainly good news for Oklahoma and Oklahoma City in particular.

The Oklahoma City area employment outlook, which was very similar to the statewide result, was the third-highest in the nation among the metropolitan areas surveyed, ManpowerGroup said.

yes it is...but on the flip side I was laid off not that long ago (after 10 yrs with the same co.) due to companywide layoffs...I had heard about how great the state and OKC in particular was doing, yet I was unemployed for 4 months...the jobs just weren't out there...some weeks it was a challenge to find 2 contacts to maintain unemployment. Some fields like Energy and Healthcare jobs seemed to be plentiful, but most other areas....

Does Oklahoma City have some huge but closed manufacturing plants that need to be busy with workers again?
