6. Cleveland, Ohio
[the_ad id=”1138″][the_ad id=”1142″]
Cleveland has a population of 390,000 – with a massive 27% living below the poverty line. With a stat like that, the economy is clearly in very bad shape indeed.
This is also one of the most corrupt cities in the country with several officials arrested on a regular basis. You also certainly don’t want to live here if snow isn’t your thing – Cleveland gets an average of 60 inches of snowfall annually.
