Mississippi economy

By Clip Syndicate

An expert says Mississippi’s economy is growing at a modest pace, but continues to lag behind the national average. Today, state economist Darrin Webb told lawmakers Mississippi has struggled to gain momentum since 2000. The state had the second lowest workforce participation rate in the nation in 2016. Only 56 percent of Mississippi residents who are 16 or older were working or actively looking for a job. The national average was nearly 63 percent. Webb says only West Virginia at 53 percent had a worse rate than Mississippi.
