Jobs are always a good thing and when you have workplaces that employ many workers that is even better, unless of course you are a person who prefers not to work, but personally I don't advise that route. Many companies are referred to as "large employers" and they are all over the United States. According to Forbes, the BEST "large employer" in America is right here in the Garden State. New Jersey is home to the very best "large employer" in America.

According to Forbes America's Best Large Employer is a Middlesex County New Jersey Company, Novo Nordisk, in Plainsboro, New Jersey. This company employs 55,000 employees here in the Garden State, that must be one heck of a Christmas party lol.
