June 2020 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
July 17, 2020
"Vermont's June data mirrored national level changes with an increase in the number of jobs and a decline in the unemployment rate.  This captures only some of the economic story here and across the country.  Unemployment insurance claims continue to be elevated and are providing a more-timely picture of the economic hardship that many Vermonters are facing.  Until these claim numbers come down, the Department will continue our expanded efforts to support claimants and jobseekers with employers looking to hire.  If you are a Vermonter seeking work or are an employer who is hiring, please contact the Department to learn about our programs and our adaptive approaches to providing services with limited in person contact."
Michael Harrington
Labor Commissioner
