Shreveport Makes ‘Best Place To Get Rich’ List

And the experts at moneyunder30.com have come up with a top 10 list, naming the best places in the country to get rich, especially if the first digit in your age is a 3...and guess who made that impressive list? Our hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana!
Taking into consideration things like employment opportunities in high paying fields, starting salaries and cost of living, Shreveport comes in a very impressive third.
Says the website:
"Much closer to Dallas, Texas (188 miles) than its in-state sister New Orleans (327 miles), Shreveport is ethnically diverse — roughly half white, half black. It began an uphill battle in the 1980s to turn things around after huge hits to its oil industry. Jobs came back in the form of the gaming industry and tourism, though Barksdale Air Force Base remains the area’s largest employer. Six casinos now populate the area, adding up to promising odds for those seeking work in the hospitality industry."
