Montgomery on "America's Brokest Cities" list

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A new study by Newsweek's The Daily Beast shows that while the economy as a whole is moving in the direction of a recovery, plenty of people remain firmly rooted in an economic struggle.

The organization compiled a list of what it calls 'America's Brokest Cities' and lists the top 30 municipalities in a slideshow.

The report takes into account the unemployment rate, the median household income, the average personal debt and average credit score.

The South did not fair well in the report having 20 of the 30 cities listed. Alabama was represented several times after Birmingham and Montgomery made the list.
