Visual Capitalist is a website that aims to share valuable information with the world in easy to understand graphics. For one of their ‘Chart of the Week’ features, they decided to create a map that shares each state’s largest employer. They recently updated it for 2019.
What companies do you think might be the largest employers on this list? Amazon? Costco? Wrong! Surprisingly, Walmart is the largest employer in many of the states in the United States. They are the biggest private employer in almost half of the states. Here is a list of the biggest employers in each state:
