An extra hour of sleep, and now this. I love Sunday mornings.

Asheville area unemployment drops to 7.1 percent on job gains



Unemployment in the Asheville area dropped to 7.1 percent among the lowest in the state in September, as the government, educational, and health sectors gained jobs.

According to information from the state's Employment Security Division, the Asheville metropolitan area Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson and Madison counties gained a net total of 1,200 jobs that month. That puts the Asheville area's unemployment at the lowest in the state after Durham/Chapel Hill. Since last September, the area's gained a net of 2,400 jobs, with gains in the professional/business, education/health and leisure/hospitality sectors offsetting losses in manufacturing and construction.

Buncombe County's unemployment rate dropped from 7.6 to 7.1 percent during the same month. Henderson County's dropped as well, from 7.5 to 6.8 percent. Both counties have among the lowest unemployment rates in the state. The numbers are not adjusted to reflect seasonal shifts in employment. Statewide, unemployment declined in 97 of the state's 100 counties.

Not sure what this means?? Are you referring to a bump in the hospitality sector due to tourists visiting for the fall color season? Is underemployment still a problem or is there a sense that things are slowly improving?
