Unemployment Up

By  | 

New numbers show job growth is still slow in Colorado.

The unemployment rate grew slightly last month to 5.2%, as seasonal ski resort workers joined the ranks of those looking for jobs. That's the same as the national unemployment rate and better than last April's state jobless rate of 5.5 percent.

The state reports that unemployment rates rose in the ski counties of Eagle, Pitkin, Summit and Routt as well as Lake County which is adjacent to ski areas.
