Indiana has more private sector jobs than ever before, according to the state’s monthly employment report.
There were 2.614 million private sector jobs in Indiana in July, compared to the previous record of 2.612 set in March 2000.
Gov. Mike Pence praised the news in a statement saying it could be attributed to the state’s residents.
“Thanks to hardworking Hoosiers for their resilience, character and the entrepreneurial spirit they bring to work each and every day, Indiana has achieved this goal and set a new record for private sector employment,” he said.
