Gallup: DC Ranks #2 in Job Growth

| Truth Revolt |

Gallup reported on net hiring of US workers in 2013 on Wednesday, and while North Dakota led the nation for the fifth consecutive year, Washington, D.C. came in second.

The job creation index, which is determined by surveying full-time and part-time workers 18 or older on whether their employer is hiring, shows the District of Columbia clocking in at a 30, tied with South Dakota.

The highest number on the scale is 40. While North Dakota and South Dakota have both been climbing in job growth every year of the last six, when the Gallup study began, the District of Columbia has only entered the top of the rankings over the last four years, since President Obama’s stimulus programs have kicked in.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
