“Among the largest states, California, Florida and Texas continue to add jobs at a pace well above the other large states,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, VP and head of the ADP Research Institute. “This is consistent with the fact that the regions they are in, West and South, have outperformed the Northeast and Midwest in employment growth during the recovery.”
