Jobs Disaster: PA Creates Less Jobs Than Tiny Delaware Over Last 12 Months

The last 12 months have been a jobs disaster for Pennsylvania.  While the nation created approximately 2 million jobs from May 2012 to May 2013, Pennsylvania created just 4,700 jobs.

Had Pennsylvania kept pace with national job creation, Pennsylvania would have created between 60,000 to 80,000 jobs from May 2012 to May 2013.  But the Pennsylvania jobs story gets worse, when it is compared to other states like even tiny Delaware.

In fact, Pennsylvania has created even less jobs than tiny Delaware.  Before you see the comparative jobs numbers, remember that Pennsylvania's population is 18 times bigger than Delaware's.

Tiny Delaware created 6,800 jobs or 44% more jobs than Pennsylvania's puny 4,700 total.  Governor Corbett is making it tough for even his apologists to come up with an explanation for Pennsylvania's horrendous economic performance.

It is not enough to criticize Corbett's failure, and I have a full Jobs Plan at www.hangerforgovernor.com.
