Vermont unemployment in October steady at 2.9 percent

Vermont unemployment in October steady at 2.9 percent

The national rate was 4.1 percent in October.

And it's three-tenths of a percent better than that rate of 4.1 percent, which was the lowest in nearly 17 years. The labor-force participation rate over the year has increased by 0.8% compared to October 2016.

A surge in the number of Idahoans sixteen years of age and older either working or looking for work in October increased the pool of available workers for employment - and pushed the state's unemployment rate up to 2.9 percent, labor officials said.

A survey of households found that Pennsylvania's civilian labor force shrank for the fifth straight month, this time by 16,000, after hitting a record high in May.
