D.C. may be an expensive city in which to live, but it is also one of the nation's top cities when it comes to open jobs paying $100,000 or more.
WASHINGTON — D.C. has the fourth-highest cost of living in the U.S., but it also ranks high for salaries.
Professional-level jobs search site Ladders ranks D.C. third in the nation for the most job openings, with salaries of $100,000 or more. Only San Francisco and New York have more seven-figure job openings.
Ladders, which only lists jobs with annual salaries of at least $100,000, said there are currently 22,218 such jobs in D.C., based on data from its continuously updated database of high-paying jobs.
The region’s unemployment rate in May was 3.2 percent, among the lowest among large cities.
