unemployment

Wyoming’s employment statistics for October were published this week showing Teton County as posting the state’s highest unemployment for the month.  However, Senior State Economist David Bullard points out that it is normal for unemployment to increase in Teton County at this time of year as the summer tourist season has ended and the ski season has not begun.  Consequently, unemployment increased in Teton County, rising from 4.4% to 6.1% for the state’s highest jobless rate for the month.  Still, that’s significantly below the rate seen in October of 2011 when 7.8% of Teton County’s workers were without gainful employment.  The lowest rate of joblessness was not far away, with Sublette County seeing only 2.9% of its workforce idled.  Nationally, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is currently 7.9%.
