Unemployment Up in Idaho
Despite job growth in June, statewide unemployment rose two-tenths of a percentage point to 6.4 percent. This is the second straight month of rising unemployement following 21 months during which the rate steadily fell more than two full percentage points.
According to the Idaho Department of Labor, “The number of workers off the job increased nearly 1,900 to over 49,000, the highest total since last November. The number of employed dropped 400 to under 724,000, the lowest level since last October. The surge in total unemployment in part reflected an increase of over 1,400 people entering labor force in June and looking for jobs.”
“While Idaho jobs increased 2.3 percent in the past year compared to 1.6 percent nationally, the Current Population Survey found an average of 170,000 of Idaho’s employed workers held part-time jobs – 23 percent of total employment. In addition over 6 percent of total employed poppulation were working more than one job.”
