The nation is enduring one of the worst job markets in decades with 9.4 percent of the population unable to find a job. Considering that one eastern metropolis is ripe for a gold rush on jobs: Washington, DC.

A new report from job-search site shows that the nation's capital has a ratio of six job openings to every one unemployed person, ripe for those looking to work at the center of politics and government.

The worst city? That would be Detroit, Michigan, the home of several struggling domestic automakers. For every one job opening in Detroit, a whopping eighteen people cannot find a job.

The data used is from this June and was drawn from the 50 most populous metropolitan areas in the United States.
