wyoming unemployment rate

Unemployment rates have dropped in all but four Wyoming counties in the past month.

Teton County saw the greatest drop in joblessness during that time, and Workforce Information Supervisor Tony Glover said this comes as no surprise.

“A lot of that is the pick-up in the tourism, and maybe more people traveling this year than last year,” Glover said.

Teton County’s rate has dropped more than a point since May of 2016, and it’s not alone – every county in Wyoming saw a decline in the annual unemployment rate.

Unemployment Up Slightly

Jun 24, 2014

The Wyoming unemployment rate rose slightly last month.   

The Department of Workforce Services says the rate was 3.8 % in May a point-one percent increase from April.  But the Department says that is due to young people leaving school and entering the workforce. 

The unemployment rate dropped nearly a full percentage point from May of last year where it stood at 4.6%. 

The lowest unemployment rate was in Converse County at 2.8%, the highest unemployment rate was in Teton County at 5.7%.
