Study says South Dakota has just 42 available workers for every 100 jobs

According to a study conducted by South Dakota Searchlight, South Dakota is tied with New Hampshire for the second-worst workforce shortage in the country. The study cites statistics from the United States Chamber of Commerce. According to the numbers, South Dakota has only 42 available workers for every 100 open jobs. Only North Dakota is worse off when it comes to the labor shortage with 38 workers per 100 open jobs. The national average is 60 available workers per 100 jobs. California, Nevada, Washington and New York are the only four states in the study with more unemployed people than available jobs.
