The Research & Planning section of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services is reporting that total unemployment insurance covered payroll in Wyoming increased by $17.5 million, or 0.6% during second quarter 2013. The report goes on that employment rose by 390 jobs and average weekly wage increased by $4. However, despite the recent growth, overall employment remains approximately 6,200 jobs below the second quarter 2008. That means, says the report, the state has yet to make up all the job losses of 2009 and 2010. None-the-less, Teton County added 663 jobs – a gain of 3.9% – and its total payroll rose by $6.8 million. Not surprisingly, the largest job gains were found in accommodation & food services, retail trade, administrative & waste services, construction, and educational services.
