Recession stricken economy has harbored unemployment all over the U.S. If you’re an Idaho State resident, the job market may be worse for you as compared to any other U.S. State. As per several surveys, Idaho’s unemployment rate has gone well beyond the 9.5 percentile.
Prior to December 2010, Idaho’s unemployment rate, as stated by the Department of Labor, was 9.4%. It was because of the rising economic turmoil and the increasing expense factors. Employers had to fire a lot of people over the past few months (500 – 600 minimum) and an additional 400 employees left the State, in order to prowl for alternative jobs.
Apart from the official ratings, I’m pretty sure that there’re more employees who were fired from their jobs. As a matter of fact, this news reminds me of a School teacher who was fired after serving 10 years in the same school. She thought that her certifications and long term credibility is more than enough to safeguard her job, but fate had something else in store for her.
Idaho’s 44 counties, and Oneida was the only region that didn’t report an increase in the unemployment. Instead of skyrocketing, Oneida officials said that the rate fell to 5.3% from 5.7%.
