Larry Hogan on Jobs

 

 


New jobs in manufacturing led to low unemployment

I'm proud to report to you that Maryland has now moved into the top ten states in the nation for overall economic performance. We have added 73,000 new jobs, and our unemployment rate has dropped to 4.2%. We created more new manufacturing jobs than all the other states in the mid-Atlantic region added together! We now rank number eight in the nation in the rate of manufacturing growth.

The reality is, not all Marylanders and not every jurisdiction in our state are seeing the same level of economic success. We still have Marylanders who are struggling in parts of our state like Baltimore City, Western Maryland, and the Lower Eastern Shore, where, unfortunately, unemployment is still higher than it is in the rest of the state. Which is why we must come together to enact the Maryland Jobs Initiative, an innovative, bipartisan proposal, which will provide incentives for the creation of thousands of jobs in the places that need them the most.
