If you live in the south, whats the job situation like in your state?

I'm from SC(and NC) and currently stuck in this craphole they call MI. I wanna go home, and when we get our tax returns, we're leaving. If you wouldn't mind, could you tell me the (general) city/state you are in and what the job market looks like? We don't need fancy jobs, more just general labor, factory work, house cleaning, etc. We're trying to keep to the southeastern states. Any suggestions are welcome. Its got to be warmer weather though! :)
