States with the worst unemployment rates are Rhode Island at 8.3 percent, and Nevada at 8 percent.

Governor Jindal commented, “Today’s job report is further proof that our workforce is expanding and our economy is growing. The fact that Louisiana continues to lead the Southern region with the lowest unemployment rate is a testament to our hard work fighting to make our state the best place in the nation to start a business and raise a family”.
