Jobless Rate in Williams County ND Is Below 1%!!
Williston (ND) Herald -- The latest numbers from Job Service North Dakota’s Labor Market Information Center report that Williams County has the lowest unemployment rate in the state, and perhaps the lowest in the entire United States. September numbers, which are the most recent available, put Williams County at a staggeringly-low 0.9 percent (see chart above).
“In my words, it’s unbelievable,” Williston Workforce Development Coordinator Shawn Wenko said. “I’ve never in my life heard of an unemployment rate that low.”
