The March unemployment numbers for Utah were published in a April 17 report by the Department of Workforce Services. The report has Utah sitting at 3.4 percent joblessness compared to 5.5 percent nationally, both of which have not changed much in the first quarter of this year.
Also reported, the number of Utahns with jobs adds up to about 1.3 million people, with 49,000 residents actively looking for a work. The job growth rate, or created jobs, for the month was 4.0 percent.
If new jobs are popping up, why does it appear the unemployment number is stagnating?
