June 2014 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
July 18, 2014
"The June data saw a rise in the state unemployment rate.  The initial modeling has been relatively consistent with what we have seen in the past few years - with the summer months experiencing temporary spikes up.  If historical patterns hold, this temporary period of adjustment should be present for the next month or two before returning to the recent downward trend.  Our department will closely monitor the data for any concerning issues or trends.  The Vermont Department of Labor staff are working closely with Vermont employers to connect job seekers to current openings, and to support all unemployed Vermonters with training and job-readiness programs.  Our regional offices welcome all Vermonters to the offices for whatever job assistance they need."
Annie M. Noonan
Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor
