Like the Sun, New York Unemployment Rises Again
The highest rate among boroughs was that of The Bronx at 10.8 percent. But it could be worse -- they could be in western New York's Niagara County, which recorded 11.5 percent unemployment in February. (The city of Niagara Falls is at 13.4 percent unemployment.) Close behind were New York's Wyoming County at 11.4 percent, Orleans at 11.0, and Allegany at 10.1. The state's unemployment went from 7 percent to 7.8.
Oh, statewide "employee confidence" was down, too: only a third of workers thought it would be easy for them to find a job in February, which is 15 points lower than it was January.
