Indiana continues to shine as a leader in job growth. In September, our unemployment rate held at 4.5 percent, giving Indiana the lowest unemployment rate among our neighboring states. It is also lower than the national average.
In addition, so far this year, Indiana has the fourth-highest employment growth rate in the country. The Indiana Economic Development Corporation has secured commitments from employers to create over 17,000 new Hoosier jobs and invest $3.2 billion in their Indiana operations.
Indiana Senator Randy Head said, “Our success in Indiana has not gone unnoticed. The Hoosier state has received many accolades this year, including best in the Midwest for our business tax climate from the nonpartisan Tax Foundation.” CNBC ranked Indiana first in the nation for the cost of doing business, and Indiana is in the top 10 states for doing business according to Chief Executive Magazine.
Head said, “As your state senator, I will continue advocating for policies that attract and keep jobs here in Indiana.”
