Wyoming Unemployment Rate Steady At 4.9 Percent

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s unemployment rate held steady at 4.9 percent in March for the fourth month in a row.

That’s according to the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.

The state agency says the seasonally adjusted figure is significantly lower than the current U.S. unemployment rate of 7.6 percent.

Senior economist David Bullard says the steady unemployment rate comes as no surprise considering Wyoming’s jobless rate had been steadily declining for more than two years before leveling off.

The Associated Press reports unemployment declined slightly in Johnson, Hot Springs and Fremont counties in March but rose slightly in Niobrara, Big Horn, Teton and Goshen counties.

Bullard says he doesn’t see any signs that Wyoming’s unemployment rate will change much in the months ahead.
