A study by the website 24/7 Wall Street says that Louisiana has one of the worst run governments in the nation.

Louisiana ranked eighth worst out of the fifty states, based off of a number of factors like credit rating, unemployment rate, median household income, and poverty rate.

The study says that things in Louisiana will get "worse before they get better," and that stunted job growth affected the state's rating.
