Did your paycheck grow last year?  The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services Friday revealed that the total unemployment insurance covered payroll increased by $142.7-million during the second quarter of 2012.  Of course, at the same time employment also grew by5701 jobs, but the department also says the average weekly wage increased by $22 or 2.7%.  That was higher than the five-year average for salary growth.  Unemployment insurance covered payroll represents approximately 91½ % of the state’s wages and salaries and 43.8% of the state’s personal incomes.  However, while the department’s computations are not yet completed, officials say it appears the growth experiences during the second quarter slowed sharply during the third quarter.

  • Change gears on the outdoor activities - July 17, 2014
    Next week’s the last full week in July, and if you live anywhere near Cheyenne, that means Cheyenne Frontier Days. It actually starts tomorrow. I kind of got into the habit of absorbing everything Frontier Days has to offer when I was working at the newspaper, and I can’t seem to get it out of […]
