Democrat Gov. John Bel Edwards’ Louisiana Was The Only State In The Country To Lose Jobs In The Past Year

Jobs and economic opportunity continue to decline under Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards.

The RGA reports:

New economic data released today by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that jobs and economic opportunity continue to decline under Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards.

Despite a booming national economy and significant gains in every surrounding state, Louisiana was the only state in the nation to see a decline in jobs in the yearlong period from July 2018 to July 2019, losing 1,000 total jobs over the year. Neighboring Texas, by comparison, gained over 323,000 jobs in the same period.

These latest job losses bring the state’s total workforce to just 1,980,900 and the total job losses since Governor Edwards took office in January 2016 to a whopping 5,900. Louisiana has lost the most jobs of any state in the nation since Edwards has been in office.

“Louisiana has lost the most jobs of any state since Governor Edwards took office, and this new data shows his policies continue to drive away work and workers,” said RGA Communications Director Amelia Chassé Alcivar. “At a time when Louisiana should be taking advantage of a strong national economy to grow jobs and expand opportunity, John Bel Edwards liberal tax-and-spend agenda is moving the state in the wrong direction, and working families are the ones paying the price.”
