"The May seasonally adjusted job numbers showed an over the month decline, as anticipated, due to the strong month of April numbers and the seasonal factors which can be difficult to predict in Vermont. These over the month fluctuations demonstrate the importance of looking at more data to better understand the overall trends. Since July 2013, the Vermont economy has been steadily improving. This long period of economic growth has taken us above pre-recessionary levels and into a period of economic expansion. Vermont employers are looking for employees to grow their business.
