Tennessee a top destination state for jobs
Tennessee ranks No. 7 with 141,845 people moving here for work during 2009-2010.
"Tennessee was one of only 15 states whose unemployment rate went down in 2009-2010. Of the 141,845 people who came into the state that year, many came from Florida, Georgia and Mississippi, all of whose unemployment rates had increased," CNBC says.
One of Tennessee’s major employers is the FedEx Corporation, and the Volkswagen factory and the North American headquarters of Nissan are also located there. Tennessee ranks number one today in car manufacturing, and it's seen gains in its manufacturing sector, education and health services sector and professional and business services sector.
The CNBC list comes from a Manhattan Institute study called "The Great California Exodus: A closer look." The institute's study includes a list of the top 10 destinations states between 1990 and 2000.
