Employment Here Rises For Tourist Season

Employment

Wyoming’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate reportedly fell from 4.8% in April to 4.6% in May; and while that may not be a statistically significant change, it remains significantly lower than the current U.S. unemployment rate of 7.6%. The largest unemployment rate decrease in Wyoming occurred in Teton County, dropping from 9.0% to 6.4%.  That is really no surprise with the onset of the summer tourist season here.  Last year, the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services reports the jobless rate here was 9.3% during May.  Meanwhile, the lowest jobless rate was to be found in Niobrara County at 3.1% followed by Sublette County at 3.2%.
