The study looked at employer expectations over a three-month period, January to March 2011.

Baton Rouge ranked first, while Seattle placed second.

Manpower expects 14% of Milwaukee area employers to add staff.

This comes as Governor-elect Scott Walker pledged to help create 250,000 jobs in Wisconsin in the next few years.
