County’s Unemployment Rate Drops
The U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that Montgomery County’s unemployment rate in August was 3.8 percent, down from 4.6 percent last August.
County Executive Isiah Leggett welcomed the news and said the latest figures are “good news for the county.”
Leggett has given priority to a Six-Point Economic Plan designed to make the County even more competitive in business attraction and job growth.
“We need to build on these gains to provide for the good jobs of the future and grow investment and the County tax base,” Leggett wrote in a statement.
