Wyoming’s employment climate during the first part of this year is reported to have been positive. Unemployment insurance covered payroll in Wyoming was up by $31.4 million, or 1.1% during the first quarter 2013. According to the Department of Workforce Services, employment rose by 460 jobs and the average weekly wage increased by $7 during the same period. In first quarter, employment grew slightly faster than its five year average, but total wages and average weekly wage both grew at a slower pace than their five year averages. Despite the recent growth, overall employment remains approximately 5,700 jobs — or 2.1% — below its first quarter 2008 level. In Teton County the increase in job opportunities was among the highest percentages in the state while the wage increase eclipsed all other counties at 10.6%.
