Bryant Economy Costs More Mississippi Jobs
Reports released last week show that under Republican Governor Phil Bryant's watch, the state of Mississippi has the highest unemployment rate in the country. Now, news is coming out that the Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi is closing its doors and taking about 350 jobs with it. Earlier this year, the Harrah's casino in Tunica closed and over 1,000 jobs were lost in the poorest region in our state. These job losses are tragedies for the individuals and families involved. Yet, once again, Bryant throws up his hands and claims there's nothing more he could have done.
