Wyoming unemployment up in October

Wyoming’s October unemployment rate increased to 4.2 percent, up from 4 percent in September.

At the same time, the state’s labor force decreased by 7,789 people (-2.6 percent) from October of last year. According to the Department of Workforce Services, that indicates unemployed workers may have moved to other states or given up their job search.

In September, Teton County had an unemployment rate of 1.9 percent. That rate grew to 3.1 percent in October, reflecting the end of the summer tourist season and transition into the fall shoulder season. The change reflects a decline in the Teton County workforce of 1,143 workers.
