MONTPELIER – March 27, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Gov. Peter Shumlin issued the following statement after news that the unemployment rate in Vermont dropped to 3.9 percent, the lowest point since May 2007.
“This is positive news for Vermont’s economy,” Gov. Peter Shumlin said. “Combined with the revised jobs numbers released last month, which showed an increase of 3,400 jobs in 2014, Vermont’s economy continues its recovery and is moving in the right direction. We still have a lot of work to do to ensure Vermont’s economy works for every single Vermonter. That is why we are focused on tackling rising health care and property tax costs, two of the biggest lags on wage growth for middle class Vermonters.”
