Unemployment in Wyoming last month actually increased very slightly from July.  According to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services, the statewide rate went from 5.7% to 5.8% — still significantly lower than the national average of 9.1%.  The jobless rate in Teton County was steady over those two months at 4.5%.  That was the state’s third lowest unemployment rate behind Sublette and Campbell Counties whose economies are powered by the energy industry.  Statewide, the August figures are an improvement from the 6.3% jobless rate seen during the same month in 2010 while Teton County saw a 6/10 of a percent improvement from last year’s August figures.  At the same time, Teton Valley’s jobless rate was reported to be 7.9%, up 3/10 of a percent from July, while the Idaho statewide average was 9.2%.
