Gov. Shumlin issued the following statement:
"It is great news that Vermont's unemployment rate has dropped yet again, and we continue to have the third lowest rate in the nation. The unemployment rate traditionally fluctuates, but this steady decline reflects what I'm hearing from employers as I travel the state -- that they are looking for skilled workers to fill their job openings. Vermont's 4 percent unemployment rate, 3.5 points lower than the national rate, makes clear that Vermont is a great place to live and work."
