the most ground to make up

Postby Hung Tao » Fri Oct 08, 2004 9:13 am

Please explain the meaning of the following sentence:
These states have the most ground to make up as they have been hardest hit by the collapse of the job market.
Thanks in advance.

'To have ground to make up' means essentially 'to be in need of progress'.
