Local jobs numbers due out this week

On Thursday, the NY state Department of Labor will release jobs numbers for the month of August, including region-by-region looks at what sectors performed best and worst.

Unemployment numbers will be released on Sept. 20.

Westchester County director of economic development Larry Gottlieb said last week that he expects the county’s unemployment rate to hover in the upper 6 percent range for the next several months.  

I’m  curious to see the jobs numbers and how they compare to the national picture in August, which saw zero net job growth. Stay tuned.
