Henderson County unemployment rate rises slightly

The unemployment rate in Jefferson County spiked from the same time a year ago when it was 6.3 percent and from October when it was 5.4 percent.

In November, there were 7,055 considered to be in the county's labor force, with 6,897 being employed and 158 people considered to be unemployed.

According to Workforce West Virginia, all 55 counties experienced an increase in the unemployment rate during the month of November.

California had an unemployment rate of 4 percent and the nation's was at 3.9 percent for the same time period.

The county workforce grew in November to 35,610, from 35,335 the previous month. Deschutes County added around 2,300 jobs since November 2016, a gain of around 2.8 percent.

The seasonally adjusted unemployment rate fell slightly over the month and was estimated at 4.8 percent in November, down from 5.6 percent one year before. Only information, wholesale trade and other services showed a slight drop since November 2016.

Canadian President Justin Trudeau tweeted: "Sophie and I are saddened by news of the sudden passing of Barry and Honey Sherman". A local constable said the circumstances of the deaths appear to be suspicious and it is being treated as such.

In Berkeley County last month, 53,240 residents had jobs, down from 53,290 the month before, while 1,920 did not have jobs, up from 1,740 the month before. Those other states' rates were: OH, 4.8 percent (down from 5.1 percent); Kentucky, 4.7 percent (down from 5.0 percent); MI, 4.6 percent (up from 4.5 percent); and IL, 4.9 percent (unchanged).

"Private-sector employers added 52,000 jobs in November and have accounted for the addition of 294,600 positions in Texas over the past year", said TWC Commissioner Representing Employers Ruth R. Hughs.

Total payroll employment fell by 230 jobs in November.

The two other sectors that posted job declines for the month were Government and Professional and Business Services. Four counties were at or above 5 percent — Clearwater, 6 percent; Shoshone, 5.5 percent; Lewis, 5.5 percent; and Adams, 5 percent. Manufacturing jobs were up by 1,400, which The Advocate said reflects the rapid growth in exports of liquefied natural gas from the Lake Charles area.

The state Employment Department calculates the unemployment rate based on the number of people in Lane County drawing unemployment benefits - which requires them to seek work - and a survey of households by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.
