Best cities for pay raises

Here’s a ranking of the best cities for pay raises, according to PayScale. PayScale chief economist Katie Bardaro says that although Tampa topped the list for annual wage growth in the second quarter of this year, it was largely due to lackluster wage growth in the year ago period. At the bottom of the list were DC and Boston, reversing a pattern of relatively strong wage growth, Bardaro said.
