Jobless numbers in July
A year-to-year comparison of unemployment data from the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development shows the July rate of 3.5 percent matches the figure from the same month a year ago. The July statistic released Thursday, shows an increase of one-tenth of a percentage point when compared to June’s rate of 3.4 percent. “Summer is a time of year when Tennesseans are in transition,” says Commissioner Jeff McCord. “People are moving, coming home and going back to school, changing jobs, and taking time for themselves which impacts unemployment at various levels across the state.”
