Do You Live In One Of The 10 Most Miserable Cities In America?

Tim's Phone 122

If you think the city you live in sucks, maybe you should take a minute to realize how #blessed you really are. There are cities across the country that are flat out miserable. Horrendous municipalities with unemployment rates in the teens, sub-$40k/year median incomes and uneducated citizens. Market Watch came up with the “Well-Being Index” to figure out which cities in the US are the most miserable. So, let’s take a look at where you should definitely not be moving ever:

10. Evansville, IN
9. Mobile, AL
8. Shreveport-Bossier City, LA
7. Columbus, GA
6. Beaumont-Port Arthur, TX
5. Hickory-Lenoir-Morgantown, NC
4. Spartanburg, SC
3. Redding, CA
2. Charleston, WV
1. Huntington, WV

West Virginia rounds out the top of the list, which should surprise no one. The list factored in the percentage of smokers living in each city, percentage of citizens with a college degree and the median income of each city. Evansville’s median income sits around $45,000 a year and Huntington’s was a paltry $39,000 a year. Only 19% of the citizens of Huntington, WV have a college degree. Woof. The list on MarketWatch goes deeper into detail and you can read it HERE.

Don’t move to any of these places.

What do I love? I love happy hour, a good golf tan, and getting moderately drunk during dinner.
