Seattle Job Market

Education is one of the main industries in Seattle thanks to the University of Washington. Information technology and computer science businesses are another large sector to the Emerald City's economy. Companies devoted to hardware manufacturing, software production, telecommunications and computer system design dominate the industry. Aerospace and transportation are a large aspect of the Seattle economy. The city is home to many of the top private and defense contracting businesses in air travel and aerospace engineering.

Seattle Employment Trends

Like all major cities, the city of Seattle took a hit in its economy after the Great Recession. The year of 2010 saw the annual unemployment rate of the city hit 9.6 percent. However, the city's unemployment rate dropped to 4.8 percent in April 2014. Business activity in Seattle improved between 2011-2012 by around $5 billion in new business profits. During the same period, start-up businesses increased by 4 percent.

Seattle Cost of Living

The cost of living in Seattle is about 17 percent higher than the national average. The highest cost of living difference between the national average is housing, with Seattle being 38 percent above the national average. To curtail some of the inequalities in the city, the Seattle city council passed a bill that makes the minimum wage in the city $15 by 2021. As a result, Seattle has the highest minimum wage of any city in the United States. The lack of a state income tax is also beneficial, though restaurant tax, gas tax and sales tax are all relatively high.
