Where do people live in Minnesota and what do they do for jobs

There are 29,000 people from India in Minnesota and a majority of them live in St. Paul and some other urban areas. Most came to support there family's with jobs that pay well and have branches of firms. They also came to get a better education so they could get better jobs.
