New Orleans ranks No. 8 in the USA for happiest employees, according to careers website Glassdoor, and reported in Forbes.
To calculate where employees are happiest, Glassdoor looked at job satisfaction ratings across the top 50 metro areas in America. For each city, it also revealed median base pay, the number of Glassdoor job listings and a sampling of companies that are hiring.
New Orleans, for example, has more than 34,000 job openings and a median base pay of $40,000. The top-ranked city, San Francisco, has a median base pay of $75,000 (but no Mardi Gras).
