region's unemployment rate down

Recommended Posts

The region's unemployment rate is around 4% now (it was 5% a year ago). This is slightly lower than the state, and half a percent lower than the national rate.

There is some interesting commentary on this issue here. Basically it looks like a pretty good picture. The region is apparently experiencing its second highest rate of employment (in terms of total number, not just percentage) since 1970.

I'm pleased by this.
