BLS Employment Statistics

Bureau of Labor StatisticsAs with the first Friday of every month, the BLS employment statistics were released today. Attached is our ‘cheat sheet’ for your use and information. The Veteran unemployment rate went down in the month of September to 5.9% and the quarterly rate for the quarter was unchanged from the second quarter at 5.4%.

The National unemployment rate went down from 6.1 to 5.9%.

 

Thanks to all of you who are working directly or indirectly to ensure our Veterans have meaningful employment.

Yes No   The unemployment rates are going down with each year, but the veteran's statistics are still a bit thrilling. I downloaded both files and checked how it looked back in 2014, over 3 years ago. I'm kinda shocked because I didn't expect to see such improvement in a mere 36 months!
