The city of McAllen is moving on top, inching close to the top spot for those looking for a paycheck.

According to the Mcallen Economic Development Council, the city ranks second in the country for job growth for 2014. Officials say job growth is the foundation to a lucrative city.

The MEDC adds that a major contributor are maquiladoras— factories that are in the Mexico border town of Reynosa, Tamaulipas. The non-profit has helped 650 companies on the McAllen-side, create over 160,000 jobs.
