February 2018 Unemployment and Jobs Press Release
March 23, 2018
Announcement:
"February numbers show growth in Vermont's labor force.  As I noted in the recent release of the January numbers, one constraint on economic growth in Vermont is the availability of labor, in particular those with the skills and abilities needed in today's labor market.  Vermont workers are the lifeblood of Vermont companies.  The Department is currently partnering with numerous organizations to ensure all Vermonters, including young people, are getting the message about available work in Vermont through career fairs and school visits.  Staff, spread across the state at any one of our twelve Career Resource Centers, are at the ready to assist Vermonters find their next work or training opportunity."

Commissioner of the Vermont Department of Labor
