Teton County posted the state’s highest unemployment rate in November according to statistics released Friday from the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.  While the state average for the month was 5.1%, Teton County came in at 9.6% for the month – an increase of 3.5% from October.  State officials blame tourism’s off season for the spike in joblessness.  That high averageplaces the county above the national rate of 7.7% for the same month.  Meanwhile, neighboring Sublette County came in again with the lowest unemployment rate in November at 3.6%.  The state agency says they anticipate having the year’s unemployment picture computed by mid-January.
