Jobless rate in Tennessee continues to drop
Tennessee officials announced Thursday that unemployment rates decreased last month in all 95 counties and significantly dropped in many rural counties, which often have the highest unemployment rates in the state. The August statewide unemployment rate of 3.3 percent is the lowest in recorded history. “To see a decrease in each and every county across Tennessee is quite an accomplishment and a sign of our state’s financial strength,” said Governor Bill Haslam. “Our historic low unemployment rate is a reflection of Tennessee’s policies – we’re a low tax state that encourages business investment and we don’t have a lot of debt, which allows businesses to thrive and create jobs.” While Rhea County has Tennessee’s highest unemployment rate at 6 percent, Davidson and Williamson counties have the state’s lowest unemployment rate at 2.7 percent. Sevier County is also among the top 10 lowest in the state.
