Governor Hutchinson Releases Statement on Declining Unemployment Numbers

LITTLE ROCK – Data from the United States Department of Labor show Arkansas’s unemployment rate dropped two-tenths of a percentage point to 4.0% in September. Governor Asa Hutchinson released the following statement regarding Arkansas’s September Unemployment Report:

“The economy continues to expand in Arkansas with the unemployment rate dropping to 4.0%. We continue to be lower than the national unemployment rate, and it is even better news that more people are returning to the workforce. Job training is available for any who wish to improve their marketable skills, and I expect job creation to continue in the state because of our skilled workforce and the population growth that we are currently experiencing.”
