Teton County last month once again boasted one of the two lowest unemployment rates in Wyoming during August.  According to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, the jobless rate for the month here dropped from 4.2% to 4.1% while the rate in Sublette County increased from 3.2% to 3.5% — still remaining the county with the lowest unemployment rate in the state.  Statewide, the unemployment rate rose a tenth of a percent last month to 5.7% which is still significantly below the national rate of 8.1%.  The agency says August tends to be among the peak months for employment with seasonal gains in construction, retail trade and transportation, warehousing and utilities. August also closes out the height of Teton County’s summer tourist season with many seasonal jobs coming to an end.
