Norwalk, Stamford Rate High for Smart Workers

NORWALK, Conn. — If you're an educated worker, you should be in good shape in Norwalk and Stamford. The area is the fourth best place in the nation for you, says this article on 24/7 Wall St. about a Brookings Institution report .

The Bridgeport-Norwalk-Stamford area, where the unemployment rate is 8.5 percent, has a low education gap , the story says. That means workers have enough education to meet the needs of employers, the Brookings Institution report quoted in the article says.

Fairfield County's proximity to Manhattan has drawn a lot of financial institutions and hedge funds to Norwalk, Stamford and surrounding towns, the article says. The best place in the nation for educated workers is Madison, Wisc., followed by Washington, D.C. and Provo, Utah, the article says.
