Vermont unemployment down a bit in July
MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - New figures show Vermont’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for July was 8.3%.
That’s down from 9.5% in June but there are still more than 28,000 people out of work.
Gov. Phil Scott, R-Vermont, says the trend is positive, but he fears unemployment numbers could soon be rising again with the onset of colder weather when not only normal seasonal jobs end, but restaurants and other businesses are forced to cease outdoor services.
