Jobs Numbers Show A Plus And A Steady

The numbers flop around a bit, but the news is pretty much the same. The State Department of Labor and Industry uncorked the June unemployment rate for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton metro area. It went down to 9.2 percent....the lowest logged since April of last year and the fifth consecutive month with a decrease. On the other side of the coin....for the 39th month in a row this area had the highest unemployment rate in the commonwealth.
