The city of Anchorage is the business hub of Alaska. A wide range of professions are found here. Workers commute from towns like Eagle River, Mat-Su, and Girdwood to their jobs in Anchorage. A tremendous school system and multiple universities are located here too. Ninety percent of Anchorage citizens hold a high school diploma and over sixty percent hold an Associate Degree or better. This allows for a thriving job market, full of creative artists and specialized workers, some of the highest wage earners per capita in the United States.
