Good Employment News In VT
Our already relatively good unemployment
situation is gradually improving here. The labor force grew from 353,400 people to 353,800, and employment went up from 339,990 to 340,700. All told, our unemployment rate dipped another 0.1% to 3.7%.
It's unclear if people are getting good jobs or not. It also appears that temp work
accounts for increased employment in professional and business services, which seems par for the course during this "recovery". All that said, I'll take this as a positive sign. Would that the rest of the country was doing better.
