In an age where “everyone gets a trophy,” a recent survey reveals Washington to be in the bottom five states for doing business.
In a poll of nearly 700 CEOs and business owners by Chief Executive Magazine, Washington state landed in the top five worst.
“States at the bottom of the list continued to suffer from reputations for high taxes, regulation, and costs of living, with Washington at No. 46, followed by New Jersey, Illinois, New York, and California, all unchanged in their rankings from previous years,” the magazine said about the bottom five.
Texas placed first again, and Florida ranked second.
