Idaho 2nd in the nation for yearly employment growth

Aug. 22, 2018

Idaho is a close second to Utah for year-to-year growth in employment, according to numbers released last week by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

From July 2017 to July 2018, Idaho tied with Nevada for a 3.4 percent employment increase. Utah was first with 3.5 percent.

The Idaho Republican Party said this latest round of positive economic numbers shows that under Republican leadership, Idahoans are benefiting from pro-jobs, pro-growth policies.
