I would like to see the correlation between the economies of these states to illegal immigrant population.
Georgia among nation’s worst economies
Georgia has the sixth-weakest state economy, according to a midyear review of state employment trends by Portfolio.com and bizjournals, the Internet arm of American City Business Journals, parent company of Atlanta Business Chronicle.
This year’s study puts Nevada in 51st place, dead-last among the 50 states and the District of Columbia. California ranked 50th, followed by Florida, Michigan, Rhode Island and Georgia.
The study gives Georgia a -9.32 score for employment, pointing out the Peach State lost 74,600 jobs from 2009 to May 2010. The state now has 3,139,200 private sector jobs and a 10 percent unemployment rate.
