The Iowa car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. have learned that Des Moines, Iowa has ranked second on the Forbe’s list of the Best Cities for New Jobs in the United States.
The unemployment rate is one of the main reasons why Des Moines was ranked so highly on this list. Since the economic recession, the city of Des Moines has had a steady 6 percent unemployment rate. The national unemployment rate average is 8.3 percent, so Des Moines has more gainfully employed residents than other cities across the country.
A survey estimated that by 2016, employment in the Des Moines area will go up by 8.6 percent, increasing from 36,000 jobs to 461,000 jobs. This rise in available jobs means that the city will be a desirable location for young professionals looking to start their careers.

Full-body scanners are set to be installed at the Des Moines airport today. The installation of these scanners has been met with much criticism from residents and political personnel alike.
People are concerned with their invasion of privacy being violated as well as the cost of the machines being justified. Each scanner costs approximately $130,000 to $170,000 to purchase as well as install. So far throughout the United States, there have been 570 scanners put in 130 different airports.
These scanners emit electromagnetic waves that jump off individuals and create a body outline that would reveal any harmful objects potentially on the person. If a person refuses to go through one of these scanners, they will be physically patted down by an officer at the airport.
