Louisiana’s economy continues to fall behind thanks to Democrat Governor John Bel Edwards’ job-killing, anti-business agenda.
New rankings released by Zippia show that Louisiana is now the worst state to find a job in the nation. This comes as Edwards faces criticism for making Louisiana’s economy “one of the worst” in the country, consistently sitting among the bottom ten states for business during his term. Edwards’ changes to Louisiana’s Industrial Tax Exemption Program, which have forced numerous businesses to flee the state and move across the border to Texas, have also drawn the ire of the state’s business community in recent weeks.
Louisiana’s economy is in decline as a direct result of John Bel Edwards’ failed management and job-killing policies. Louisiana deserves better.
