Economist Loren Scott suggests in his Louisiana Economic Outlook that Louisiana may top the 2 million employment mark in 2019, if job strength continues to grow.
Speaking to One Acadiana last week, Scott said the state began to emerge from a 20-month recession last spring and will add 12,000 jobs in 2018 and 22,300 jobs the following year. If those projections are right, he said, Louisiana will count 2,013,600 employed people in 2019, the first time in history it will cross the 2 million mark.
