Putnam Enjoys Low Unemployment Rate
County Exec Stresses Economic Development & Jobs
Putnam County has done it again by recording the lowest rate of unemployment in all of New York State. The New York State Labor Department reported last week Putnam’s rate of unemployment for June was 7 percent, up from 6.8 percent in May and 6.5 percent in June of 2011. Back in 1998, Putnam’s 2.2 percent rate of unemployment was also the lowest in all of New York State.
