The gap between Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate and the national rate is among the widest it has been in decades.
More than two years after the first pandemic-related business shutdowns, tens of thousands of unemployment claims continue to plague Pennsylvania’s unemployment compensation system.
“That’s a remarkable number. We had never seen a number like that … in any state across the nation.”
Pennsylvania’s payrolls grew again in December as the unemployment rate fell for the 10th straight month.
Pennsylvania’s unemployment rate fell for the ninth month in a row and payrolls grew again in November, but the labor force shrank.
In a separate survey of employers, payrolls in Pennsylvania grew in October by 19,000, to closer to 5.8 million.
