At Under 4%, New Hampshire has the Lowest Unemployment Rate in the East

March 17, 2015

nhisgreat  New Hampshire’s unemployment rate is now 3.9%. That’s well below the 5.5% national rate! For the second month in a row, New Hampshire has the lowest unemployment rate in the Eastern United States. Stand out cities include Lebanon at 2.9%, Portsmouth at 3.3%, and Dover at 3.5%. Neighbor state Vermont has the second lowest unemployment rate in the East. North Dakota has the lowest unemployment rate in the nation. Mississippi, Nevada, and the District of Columbia have the highest unemployment rates in the nation. Employment is up and unemployment is down in the Granite State. In fact, employers are complaining that there aren’t enough people looking for work in New Hampshire. Are you a liberty activist looking for work? Help New Hampshire employers by helping yourself.

The job fair, organized by New Hampshire Employment Security, attracted fewer than half the people in the first hour than a similar one held there last June. Employment Security Commissioner George Copadis said Tuesday’s venue was changed only last Friday and that job fairs around the state are seeing fewer job seekers. “Lower unemployment,” he said. “People have found work.” – See more at: http://www.unionleader.com/article/20150311/NEWS02/150319849
