CNN Money announced on Monday the top US cities with hourly wage growth, and Columbus topped the list with a 6.2% increase over last year. That rate is nearly triple the national average, which clocked in at 2.1% growth during the same time period.

San Francisco wasn’t far behind in second place at 6.0% with Virginia Beach, Louisville and Rochester rounding out the rest of the top five. The article points out that a similarity between all of the top cities on the list is a low unemployment level (or a rapidly improving one), noting that the current rate in Columbus is 4.2% — much lower than the national rate of 5.3%.
