According to the New York Times, Minneapolis and Philly have more than two times more teacher's aides, mental health technicians, and support specialists than other cities in America.

The study takes into account job postings from, and while Philly is Minneapolis' twin, so to speak, in the northeast portion of the United States, no city is more comparable to Minneapolis than Chicago.

Interestingly, a large number of tanning consultant job postings are what makes Portland, Oregon and Dallas, Texas, Minneapolis' twins on the West Coast and Deep South, respectively.

Hey, don't knock it. It's easy to spray tan yourself orange. 

Overall, Chicago, Portland and Milwaukee are most like Minneapolis - job marketwise - than any other American cities.
