Since the end of the Great Recession in 2009, the US economy has entered an era of unprecedented growth. Total employment grew over a record 109 consecutive months to October 2019, and the national unemployment rate reached 3,5% in September 2019, the lowest level since the 1960's, writes USA Today.

For most places in the United States, labor market improvement has been a dominant phenomenon for some time. But in some US cities, growth and prosperity have gone unnoticed. In these cities, job growth in recent years has been sluggish or absent, and unemployment is much more common than in the whole country.

In 128 US megacities, total employment doubled or was lower than in comparable national employment growth rates between 2010 and 2018 (14,4%). In 26 of these areas, the unemployment rate is 5% or higher. 24 / 7 Wall Street analyzed changes in employment rates by sector based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics to determine why it has become harder to find work in these cities.

It is important to note that cities on this list do not necessarily show the highest unemployment rates. In the whole country, in 10 cities, the unemployment rate is higher than in this list. They nevertheless reported an increase in employment close to or above the national level. Cities with the highest unemployment rates also tend to be highly dependent on the agricultural sector, which can distort performance, as work is often seasonal.
