The Gem State is at the top of the list for job growth and Bannock County economic experts say it’s because of a favorable climate for businesses in the state. Personal finance and business website Kiplinger highlighted Idaho and nine other states with employment gains ranging from 2.7 percent to 3.5 percent. According to the website, Idaho has had a 3.5 percent increase so far this year, making it the top contender. In April, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed Idaho was the best state for job growth between March 2015 and March 2016.
