UNEMPLOYMNET RATE NOT GIVING US THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE

 While stats show the unemployment rate dropped in our area for the fourth consecutive month, director of employment services Ross Fair says not to jump to any conclusions yet.  He says the percentage is not accurate when viewed on its own, and he thinks we should be looking at it a different way.

 

Fair says you need t olook at details such as who has lost jobs and who has gained them, as well as how many people have dropped out of the job search, as that will cause the UE rate to go down as well.
