Idaho’s Unemployment Rate Stays Steady at 3.6 Percent
Perhaps it's not "good news," but it's also not "bad news," as Idaho's unemployment rate has remained steady at 3.6 percent as the state led national job growth simultaneously.
The Idaho Department of Labor reported that 2200 people secured employment in February as 2100 jobs were added to the labor force. That means that 100 less workers state-wide were classified unemployed for the month of February.
As we have shared before, Idaho job growth over the last year (non-farm), especially in construction and financial segments, has increased 3.6 percent which according to Idaho officials leads the nation.
