Department of Virginia,
As with the first Friday of each month, the BLS employment statistics were released today. Attached is a monthly ‘cheat sheet’ for use and information. The national unemployment rate for August 2017 increased slightly from 4.3% to 4.4% and the Veteran unemployment numbers for August 2017 increased from 3.5% to 3.7%.
Thanks to all of you who are working directly or indirectly, to ensure our Veterans have meaningful employment.
For God and Country,
