"Private sector hiring continues to be positive, and accounts for all the job growth seen in the past year in Vermont. Employer-reported job increases are also mirrored by increased levels of employment reported by Vermont households. This growth has pushed up the statewide labor force and pushed down the unemployment rate. This is positive data as Vermont heads into the winter months. Employers in the leisure and hospitality sector are reporting a strong start to the winter season, and, as anticipated, are hiring. The Vermont Department of Labor will connect job seekers to current job openings, which allows our business community to prosper and expand. Contact the Department of Labor, through any one of our 12 regional offices, to learn about our extensive services."
