The October 2009 version of the Lehigh Valley Job and Labor Outlook is available, thanks to our friends at the Lehigh Valley Workforce Investment Board.  A rough (very rough) summary of the employment trends:
  • Unemployment went up - 9.3% in August - from 9.0% in July.  In August 2008, unemployment was 6.1%.  
  • In the Lehigh Valley statistical area, about 38,800 people are unemployed. 
Check out the report for additional information.
