Chicago ranked as one of the most miserable cities in America?

SHARE Chicago ranked as one of the most miserable cities in America?

As Chicagoans, we have a healthy amount of pride in our city. That goes without saying.

We like to view it as a world-class town and actively defend the weather, saying the gorgeous lakefront summers are worth the tough winters.

Forbes Magazine obviously cares not for this argument. The publication ranked Chicago as the third Most Miserable City in America.

Why, you ask?

Lousy weather, long commutes, rising unemployment and the highest sales tax rate in the country are to blame for the Windy City being near the top of our list. High rates of corruption by public officials didn’t help either.

Here is their list of the 10 most miserable:

  1. Stockton, Calif.
  2. Memphis, Tenn.
  3. Chicago, Ill.
  4. Cleveland, Ohio
  5. Modesto, Calif.
  6. Flint, Mich.
  7. Detroit, Mich.
  8. Buffalo, N.Y.
  9. Miami, Fla.
  10. St. Louis, Mo.

Seriously, Forbes? You honestly think Chicago is more miserable than Flint?

Let’s have some righteous indignation. This is a joke.
