HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - This is a news release from the House Democratic Caucus
Once again, Mississippi is at the top of another bad list.
Mississippi has the highest unemployment rate of any state in the nation. Making matters worse, Mississippi's unemployment rate rose again in July for the third straight month.
"The latest job numbers are a stark reminder that Governor Phil Bryant and his legislative leadership team's only economic plan for Mississippi is failure," said House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rep. Bobby Moak (D – Bogue Chitto).
