Your mom is something in the syrup industry.
The top industries in Maine have shifted dramatically over the past several decades. Maine was once known for building ships and making paper, as well as agriculture and fishing. Today, the Pine Tree State is still home to one of the nation’s largest ship manufacturers. It still produces more paper, farms more wild strawberries, and catches more lobster than most other states combined.
Those industries have all shrunk in recent years, however, with booms in areas such as technology and tourism shifting jobs in Maine–as in other states–from making goods to providing services.
Here’s a look at five of the top industries in Maine today.
Roughly 8 percent of Maine’s population works in the healthcare and social assistance industry, state figures show. Jobs in this industry include everything from doctors to ambulance workers. It’s been among the state’s fastest growing sectors in the past 10 years. That’s led to more healthcare workers per capita than the national average, according to a state labor report. Maine does still need workers in particular fields, however, with the state reporting the biggest demand in psychiatry.
More than 6 percent of Maine’s 1.3 million people work in retail trade, according to the latest figures available from the state. Some of the largest employers in this sector are car dealerships, gas stations, food and beverage stores, and clothing stores. The retail industry bounced back much faster than other industries in Maine after the recession, with the sector now primarily seeing annual up-and-down cycles typical of the sales world.
Thanks to its lighthouse-laden coastline, famous food and rich American history, tourism has been a steadily growing industry for Maine. That’s evident by the growing number of people employed in the state’s accommodation and food services sector. Roughly 85,500 jobs in Maine are tied to the tourism industry, the state tourism office reports, with some $2.2 billion in income generating by hotel stays, restaurant visits and shopping.
4. Education Services
More than 59,000 Maine residents work in the education services industry, per the latest state jobs report. Teachers may be public or private employees in K-12 schools, universities, business training schools or support programs. Education services was Maine’s fastest-growing industry over the past decade, state data shows. And an increasingly stable state budget points to opportunities for teachers in government-funded schools and training programs.
Construction in Maine has started to bounce back from the recession, with opportunities for new workers. More building permits were pulled in Maine in 2014 than in 2013, the National Association of Home Builders reports. And the state saw growth in building construction, civil engineering, and specialty contractor jobs over the past year, with roughly 4 percent of the state’s population working in some form of construction.
Multiplicity was such an underrated movie.

I imagine we score well in Healthcare, economy, infrastructure, opportunity, and fiscal stability. Can't imagine environment being too high.
LOL at education and crime rate.
Half the people in the Tampa area are professional wrestlers
It's true. My old gym had a ton working out there. Undertaker, Chris Jericho, Big Show, Edge, Christian, Tori Wilson.
Should add cost of living to that composite.
Why the hell is Eminem associated with St. Joseph, Missouri?
I remember reading he lived in Missouri for a little bit at one point in time
Wikipedia says he was born there, so there's the connection.
Pumpkin? Jesus Ohio can we not embarrass ourselves?
Jeff sessions and Selma? Wow. Color me shocked
coconut milk? The fuck?
Have never once even seen tiger tail. Licorice ice cream? Fuck no.
Vanilla for Kansas, Maine, New Hampshire, and North Dakota is so on brand.
#Michigan State Spartans #Michigan Wolverines
Well, that is in fact where he was born.
It is an ice cream for little kids but it is delicious.
It's an ice cream for everyone. It includes blue moon which is also a regional flavor.
Superman Ice cream is awful. Is that what this is about?
Look at South Carolina, the progressive hipster bastion alongside fellow states Oregon and Washington.
(This map's methodology must be very flaud)
Is it as flawed as your spelling though?
“What’s your favorite beer?”
“MIKES HARD LEMONADE“
I spelled that wrong? Mind is bottled
I see you Delaware with that tiny blue moon logo
is North Louisiana a state now?
Guessing those two had the same number of responses in Louisiana
I don’t trust that map.
I don't know anyone that drinks Bud heavy on purpose. I call shenanigans.
Bud Light is the highest selling beer in the US but apparently not in any individual state. I call BS on this entire map.
I know I single-handedly make Miller Lite the highest selling beer in Kansas. And no Busch in NE or IA, GTFO.
Agreed. No way that map is accurate without a single Bud Light crown. I'd be surprised if Stella is a top seller in any state, let alone 5+.
At this point I just assume that all of these maps are completely made up
or all from here:
a) i assumed they just used the bud heavy logo instead of budlight. probably becuase that map was made by someone in a click farm in a third world country who doesn't know the difference.
b) I was out on these maps after "favorite Halloween candy by state." There were very few repeats on that map - I refuse to believe there can be that much variety on that subject.
No fucking way Stella moves as much product as Bud in Louisiana.
And when was the last time anyone saw Bud Ice?
MN should be Michelob Golden Light. We love that shit, and I don't know if you can even buy it anywhere else.
It's started to trickle down here to KC in the last year or so. I'd seen it on tap on occasion but now I'm starting to see it in liquor stores and such.
I used to have a coworker native to MN bring me back a few cases of the stuff every time she went to see family.
Damn, Wisconsin. Coors Lite. What happened to you?
All those are trash
I saw bud ice this week at the Walmart that wasn't classy enough to have any Naturdays
discussion in the Ohio earthquake thread sent me looking for this
Its not wrong for Oregon
