Unemployment Down Statewide
Written by Andrew-Rossi on June 20, 2018
Wyoming’s unemployment rate fell from 3.8 percent in April to 3.7 percent in May.
The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services reports that from April to May most county unemployment rates decreased.
The largest unemployment rate decreases among counties were seen in Teton, Johnson, Park, Lincoln and Hot Springs. The state’s highest rate was 4.7 percent in Fremont County, followed by 4.5 percent in Big Horn, 4.4 percent in Natrona, and 4.2 percent in Washakie County.
The agency says jobless rates usually fall in May as warmer spring weather brings job gains in construction, leisure and hospitality as well as government.
