Compare Meridian to Top 10 Best Places
Meridian fared relatively well through the recession, thanks in part to the many different types of businesses in the city. The CORE (a health, technology, and research cluster), Blue Cross of Idaho, and PKG UserInterface Solutions are a few of the major local employers. Those who venture to Boise for work find the commute relatively painless. Nothing's perfect, though: Like all Idaho residents, Meridian families pay a decent amount in sales and income taxes. --E.R.Subscribe to Money Magazine
