Mapped: The Largest Employers in Each US State

United States Maps + Infographics
by Tim Wenger Jan 16, 2018

Where you live might say a lot about where you work. Thrillist mapped each state’s largest employer, with one household name coming in far ahead of the pack. Employing over 1.5 million Americans, Walmart leads the charge in 22 states. University and healthcare systems also hold their own. And with a solid grip on the Las Vegas strip, MGM employes over 55,000 people in Nevada.

Other surprises?

We knew Denver International Airport was huge (over 54 square miles), but did you know this air hub employees 35,000 people? Other notes of honor go to New Jersey’s Wakefern Food Corporation and Maine’s Hannaford Supermarkets.
