LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Laredo may be one of the most overlooked and underrated, if not downright chastised, cities in Texas. Sure, it’s not a great place for food lovers, but as our latest ranking shows, it is one of the best place for female professionals.
This comes from an article from Movato.com, stating Laredo ranks in at #9 on the Top Ten Best Cities for Professional Women.
With an economy based mostly on international trade with Mexico, most major U.S. transportation companies have a facility in Laredo, which may be a big reason behind both this city’s unemployment rate of 7.2 percent and the recent job growth of 2.43 percent.
Laredo scored well for women in particular, with an average woman’s salary of $633 per week and one of the lowest costs of living on our list: 77, where the national average is 100.
