Tri-Cities Labor Market Continues to Lag
The Tri-Cities labor market continues to lag, according to ETSUís Bureau of Business and Economic Research reporting on the second quarter. The area continued to shed jobs and see jobless workers departing the labor force. Compared to the same period in 2013, regional employment was lower by 0.4%. Employment has now declined for the past nine quarters, driving increasing numbers of jobless workers out of the regional labor force. Under these conditions, the Bureau reports, a falling unemployment rate is a sign of labor market weakness rather than strength. (LM)
