Employment rose by 1,649 jobs but the average weekly wage decreased by $4.00, or ½%. Teton County gained 173 jobs and its total payroll increased by $3.2-million, or 1.7%. Growth was seen in a number of sectors, such as accommodation & food services, professional & technical services, health care & social assistance, and transportation & warehousing. Despite the recent growth statewide, overall employment remains approximately 10,000 jobs below its third quarter 2008 level, that’s a 3.4% deficit. In third quarter, total wages and average weekly wage grew at a much slower pace than their five year averages Analysts have noted that “minerals related employment is one of the key predictors of sales and use tax revenue” in Wyoming.
