Idaho's unemployment rate has dropped to its lowest point since August 2008. It dropped a tenth of a percent in March to 5.2 percent.
Bob Fick is with the Idaho Department of Labor. He says the March data continues a trend that started a year and a half ago.
“We’ve seen job creation at two percent to three percent over the last 18 months, while the national rate has been about 1.5, 1.6 every month, year over year," Fick says. "So we’re creating jobs at a significant pace."
