Unemployment Dips In Teton Valley

Employment

Hiring in Idaho during September fell just short of levels seen during the mid-2000 expansion, but it was enough to drive the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate down two-tenths of a point to 9 percent. It was the first time Idaho’s rate has slipped below the national rate since last November.  In Teton County, Idaho, the unemployment rate fell to 6.1% — down from 8% in August.  In terms of actual jobs,78 fewer people were employed last month than during the previous month, but at the same time there were 188 fewer people in the labor force and 110 fewer people filed for unemployment.  However, state employment officials point out that even though Idaho’s jobless rate has fallen three-quarters of a point over the last 10 months, it has been at or above 9 percent since the beginning of 2010. The rate was 9.5 percent in September 2010. Prior to November 2010, Idaho’s unemployment rate had been below the national rate for more than nine years.  Wyoming’s monthly employment report for September is to be published Tuesday morning.

    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
