Few places seem to have been hit as hard as Michigan, with 1.3 million people struggling to pay household expenses. Another 766,976 are finding it extremely difficult on a day to day basis.
And that’s all on top of the fact that Michigan was $56.6 billion in debt before the start of the pandemic. This debt could create a $17,000 burden per taxpayer.
Before 2020 (and the Coronavirus) rolled around, The Pelican State was already $21.6 million in debt. Each taxpayer would have to pay $17,000 in taxes in order to lift that burden.
But since COVID-19 has swept the nation, things have gotten even worse, with 575,439 finding it hard to pay their household bills, 57,598 people out of a job, and another 53,876 residents fearing they’ll lose their jobs in the near future.
It doesn’t look like there’s an end in sight for residents of Louisiana.
