Where Are The Workers?!

When it comes to full-time employees, according to a recent Gallup survey, less than half of the American adult population (age 18+) worked at least 30 hours a week in 2015.  Only four States exceeded the 50% threshold, everyone else was below 50% (Oklahoma came in at 43.1% — hmm, closer to the bottom than to the top.)  Here’s the five highest states (of percentage of adults employed full-time) and the five lowest states.

Highest percentage of adults working full-time
1. District of Columbia (57.0%)
2. North Dakota (51.5%)
3. Hawaii (50.6%)
4. Nebraska (50.3%)
5. Minnesota (49.5%)

Lowest percentage of adults working full-time
1.  West Virginia (38.3%)
2. New Mexico (39.2%)
3. Alabama (39.2%)
4. Mississippi (40.5%)
