New report shows DE unemployment up .1% for 6th month in a row

Report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics

A Better Delaware Commentary

The Bureau of Labor Statistics released the December 2019 unemployment numbers on Friday, showing Delaware unemployment still on the rise, with a 3.9% unemployment rate.

The First State ranks dead last in economic output, faces a shrinking economy over the next six months according to the Fed, and ranks among the worst states in the nation for fiscal health.

Small businesses employ over 90% of workers in the state. Strangling these employers with new taxes and regulations will keep employment numbers on a downward trend and hurt our state.
