The All-American City

Fayetteville is known as the “All-American City” and has become the world’s first sanctuary for military families due to the close proximity to Fort Bragg and Pope Air Force Base. According to Forbes, Fayetteville’s major industries are defense and education. Most Fayetteville residents are employed in either healthcare, retail or education. As we have written about before, healthcare is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States. Regardless of the Fayetteville industry you work in, being hurt at work can leave you without income and mounting medical bills.
