If it seems like people are losing their jobs all around you, it’s true. And not just in media.
The latest stats from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that Jefferson County’s jobless numbers have almost reached 10 percent – at 9.7 for February. That’s the highest among surrounding counties and up .5 percent since January.
The lowest Kentucky rate is in Fayette, at 7.4, but it’s no haven of employment. Every county in Kentucky saw a rise in unemployment from January to February.
The highest is Menifee County at 18.9.
