Louisiana hosts some of the most festive celebrations in the nation, especially during Mardi Gras. From the sweet notes of the Dixieland jazz in the streets of New Orleans to the deep resonant sounds of the bullfrogs in the bayous, the state offers a variety of cultures and industries.
Louisiana is one of the nation's top petroleum and natural gas producers, but also a major source of seafood, contributing approximately one-fourth of the nation's seafood. Sugar cane, rice and sweet potatoes top the state's agricultural products, making it one of the top agricultural states for these specialty crops.
According to a recent report from the Louisiana Workforce Commission, manufactoring jobs, including protrulem and coal engineers and textlie engineers, are projected to grow by 11 percent throughout Louisiana and provide employees with competitive wages.
