The "Silicon Slopes" are luring a lot of workers these days. The name refers to the tech hub of Salt Lake City, Utah, and is a big reason the city is No. 1 in a ranking of the hottest US job markets by the Wall Street Journal and Moody's Analytics. The ranking takes into account a number of factors, including the unemployment rate, size of the labor force, and wages. Florida, meanwhile, had four cities in the top 10:

  1. Salt Lake City, Utah
  2. Jacksonville, Florida
  3. Orlando, Florida
  4. Tampa, Florida
  5. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
  6. Miami, Florida
  7. Austin, Texas
  8. Nashville, Tennessee
  9. Seattle, Washington
  10. Dallas, Texas
