If you live in Idaho and you aren’t working, it’s because you don’t want to!
Idaho’s jobless rate dropped to a scant 3.3% in August.
Idaho Commerce and Labor Director Roger Madsen called the August report “one of the best I have seen in 30 years in Idaho”.
The August results come on the heels of 3.2% in March, followed by 3.6% in July.
A significant number of new teaching jobs have been created in Idaho recently, largely due to the strength of the Boise real estate market, combined with in-migration of new residents from other states.
The national unemployment rate currently stands at 4.7%, so we’re looking pretty good!
