California, Florida Among Worst States for Retail Jobs
The retail sector continues to suffer the effects of the recession in 49 of the 50 states. And yes, the single exception is Texas. The state has gained 22,600 retail jobs during the past five years, according to an On Numbers analysis of the latest seasonally adjusted data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Only five other states have picked up any jobs at all, and none of their increases is greater than 1,500.
