This One Map Shows The Largest Employer In Every State
Business Insider ^ | 05/27/2014 | CHRISTINA STERBENZ

BVN Largest Employers MAP

Broadview Networks

The above map, sent to us by Mike Simmons of Broadview Networks, shows the largest employer in every state. 

Broadview Networks used information from CareerOneStop, a database sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor. 

Interestingly, only two companies in the top 10 largest employers in America — IBM and Wal-Mart — appear as a state front-runner. And the map doesn't feature other large companies, like UPS and McDonald's, at all.

Instead, major state universities, like those in Alabama and Colorado, and innovative hospitals, like the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, employ the most residents in numerous states.

In some states, like Alabama, when companies tied for the most employees, Broadview Networks chose to represent only one on the map.

Here's the state-by-state breakdown: 

Alabama – Alabama Power Co.

Location – Birmingham, AL

Number of Employees – 5,000

 

Alaska – Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport

Location – Anchorage, AK

Number of Employees – 9,000

 

Arizona – Sun State Courier & Delivery

Location – Scottsdale, AZ

Number of Employees – 20,000

 

Arkansas – Wal-Mart

Location – Bentonville, AR

Number of Employees – 11,000

Shouldn't that be largest private employer in each state?

Billings Clinic, never heard of it. But I’m from Western Montana.

I’m afraid that I haven’t heard of Doernbacher Children’s hospital either.

RE: Billings Clinic

It isn’t just a Montana based company.

The Billings Clinic is an integrated health care organization, based in Billings, Montana. It’s a not-for-profit organization which serves the local community as well as residents of Montana, Wyoming and the western Dakotas.

Wow. Out of all fifty states, the only companies that do ANY manufacturing are Sikorsky (CT) and Microsoft (WA), and the Microsoft tangible stuff (xbox, mice, Surface tablets) are made overseas. It is also interesting that the Missouri’s biggest employer is a Jewish hospital while NY’s is a Catholic hospital.

It does show how much Government has dominated the economy; and conversely the fallacy of the Left demonizing various Big industry companies as dominating the economy and politics. It also shows why it is so hard to cut government spending, especially in academia and public medical facilities “(filled with government unions) - who wants to vote themselves out of a job?

The State is the state’s largest employer.

Maine – University of Maine
Location – Orono, ME
Number of Employees – 8,000

Totally wrong. The University of Maine at Orono only has 11,000 students. The academic staff is 720.

There is the University of Maine at Orono and there is the umbrella organization of all public universities in Maine: University of Maine System. UMS has 5,590 employees system-wide according to their website.

Our largest employer is Hannaford Bros. Co., a supermarket company with 7,500+ employees. I don’t know if all of these employees are in Maine. The largest employer that I can tell is primarily Maine employees is LL Bean’s based in Freeport Maine with 7,000+ employees. Bath Iron Works in Bath Maine with 5,000+ employees is the largest manufacturer in Maine.

This site seems to corroborate the article:

http://www.acinet.org/oview6.asp?soccode=&id=&nodeid=12&stfips=47&from=State

According to the table on the link, Vanderbilt University employs 22,000 people.

If you include all of the Vanderbilt system (including the Medical centers ), it would add up to 57,000 employees.

Fedex employs just 4,000.

RE: University of Florida is a larger employer than Disney?

The problem is they’re DIVIDING Disney into several groups when in fact they’re all one company.

According to this site:

http://www.careerinfonet.org/oview6.asp?soccode=&id=11&nodeid=12&stfips=12&from=State

University of Florida employs 35,000 people

Disney on the other hand, is divided into:

Disney Quest 9,000 employees
Disney Animal Kingdom Resort 9,000
Disney Hollywood Studios 9,000
Epcot 9,000
Magic Kingdom 9,000

Add all those together and you have 45,000 employees under Disney. MORE than the University of Florida system.

But then, you have the University of South Florida which has 13,800 employees and University of Central Florida, which has 10,500 employees.

Now if you include those Universities and say they are under the STATE University system, then yes, the State Government’s EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM is still larger than Disney.

Darn straight this map is innaccurate. For example New Jersey’s largest employer is listed as Gabriel Taxi & Limo Service......total BS. This company only services a small part of New Jersey and there is no way on earth it employs 25,000 people.

New Jersey is headquarters to many large pharmaceutical (e.g. Johnson & Johnson) and insurance (e.g. Prudential) companies. There is no way a local taxi company employs more people than them.

If you Google new Jersey Largest Employers, Wakefern Foods (36,000 employees) and Rutgers University (28,700 employees) are the two at the top of the list. Gabriel Taxi is not on it anywhere.

This map is a joke.

Maybe they meant jobs actually in that state.

It would seem that ShopRite probably has employees in that number that don’t live or work in NJ.

From wiki.answers.com/Q/Who_are_the_largest_employers_in_washington_state

As of July 2013, the companies with the largest amount of employees in the US state of Washington are:

1) Boeing 85,000
2) Joint Base Lewis-McChord 56,000
3) Navy Region Northwest 43,000
4) Microsoft Corp. 41,664
5) University of Washington 29,800

From July, 2013 Puget Sound Business Journal:

This latest list of employers is topped by Chicago-based Boeing, with 85,000 employees working at its Commercial Airplanes division and other manufacturing operations in Everett, Renton and elsewhere in the state. That's almost half of the aerospace company's 172,000 total employees.

Unless Micro$haft has grown a lot in less than a year, yeah, this guy needs to do some better research than acinet. Their 2014 listing doesn't even list Boeing until #18, which is 'Boeing Training and Flight Svc', which is really a small division of Boeing based in Renton.

This is why I take these "charts" with a huge bag of salt. They're almost always wrong, made up by ill-informed idiots who don't have even the simplest internet research skills.
