North Dakota Leads in Job Creation for Fifth Straight Year: Rhode Island has lowest Job Creation
Gallup ^ | 02/12/2014 | Lydia Saad

For the fifth consecutive year, North Dakota topped all other states in employee perceptions of job creation at their workplaces in 2013, as measured by the Gallup Job Creation Index. North Dakota's +40 index score easily surpasses the District of Columbia's and South Dakota's second-place +30 scores. Rhode Island workers saw the least job creation, with a +12 score.

Gallup's Job Creation Index is a measure of net hiring, determined by asking full- and part-time U.S. workers, aged 18 and older, whether their employer is hiring new people and expanding the size of its workforce, not changing the size of its workforce, or letting people go and reducing the size of its workforce.

Why do we even need a pipsqueak state like RI, anyway?

Because no other state has a ‘Woonsocket’?

Excuse me? Because they fought the Revolution against King George III... and only later consented to admit Texas and 36 other states to the Union?

Really? LOL

I was afraid that might happen when I posted it, LOL.

I think I’d rather visit the one there. Never been to RI, though.
