Jindal says Louisiana growing at remarkable rate
Written by 

Jindal-Meet-the-pressThe Bureau of Labor Statistics Regional and State Employment Summary has just been released.

 The summary reported that "the number of people employed in Louisiana's civilian labor force reached another record high, exceeding 2 million for the first time in Louisiana's history." The unemployment rate is currently 4.5%, the best in  the 17-state southern region. Following the release of the report, Governor Jindal issued a statement: "Today's announcement is another indication that Louisiana's economy is growing at a remarkable rate. Because of all we have done to make Louisiana a great place to do business, we have now set another record for the number of people working...[The number] is proof that our hard work overhauling the ethics code, revamping the workforce training system, cutting taxes, and improving or education system is paying off. Louisiana now has more jobs, more people, and higher incomes than any point in our state's history and our future is bright."
