"The Federal shutdown created significant disruption and uncertainty in the work of the state departments of labor, since much of our work relies upon the technical support and approval of the USDOL. As a result, the data and information that we regularly provide to Vermonters, our business community, and education and policy makers has been delayed. This is the first press release in two months. As reported here, Vermont employers are continuing to report job growth. The overall number of paid positions has increased, and Vermont seems to be moving forward to recapture the jobs lost during the last recession. By comparison, Vermont is faring much better than most other states. We are only about 2,000 jobs short of the high-number of jobs reported at the peak in June 2007."
