By October 20, 2017Uncategorized

The unemployment rate in Arizona for the month of September declined to 4.7%, the lowest level since 2008. The improvement was due to the continuous jobs growth in the state.

According to the state’s Office of Economic Opportunity, the unemployment rate last month was 5%. In September last year, Arizona’s unemployment rate was 5.1%.

In a statement, Governor Doug Ducey said, “This is tremendous news showing the continued strong and resilient state of our economy.” According to him, the men and women who are working hard launching businesses and hiring more workers deserve the credit.

Ducey added vowed to keep “government out of the way of innovative ideas and technology” to ensure that Arizona remains a “land of opportunity for all.”
