Jobless number decline in Massachusetts!
November 19, 2010
In case you didn’t see this, Massachusetts unemployment numbers were announced yesterday and guess what? They’ve dropped! To the lowest level since April of 2009!
According to the state’s Executive office of Labor & Workforce Development, the Massachusetts unemployment rate fell from 8.4% in September to 8.1% in October as the state added approximately 10,000 new jobs. It was the steepest monthly decline since 1976.
We have to feel good about this particularly since the Massachusetts unemployment rate remains well below the national unemployment rate of 9.6%.
