"The lack of snow directly impacted the number of jobs in Vermont in December. People who had been hired by employers in the leisure and hospitality sector were laid off when the snow didn’t arrive as expected, and ski lifts were idled, hotel rooms weren’t booked, and restaurants weren’t serving the winter-season visitors. As such, the December employment data had notable employment loss; fortunately, the situation is turning around, and many of those laid off workers are now back to work. Vermont employers are still hiring, and job training programs and internships are available for many Vermonters. The Department of Labor encourages anyone looking for work or a career change to visit one of our 12 regional career centers."
