February 2017 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
March 24, 2017
"For the seventh year in a row, Vermont employers reported a greater number of jobs in our state's economy compared to the previous year.  Over the same period, Vermont has also seen a decline in the number of unemployed Vermonters.  For these positive trends to continue, we are all going to have to work together to make sure students, the currently unemployed and under-employed, and anyone considering relocating to Vermont are getting the correct information about the Vermont economy.  Vermont businesses of all sizes, representing many diverse industries, have jobs at all levels and are hiring.  Businesses and individuals alike are encouraged to work with their local Vermont Department of Labor Career Resource Center to fill open positions."
Lindsay Kurrle
Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor
