Another unemployment breakthrough for Merrimack Valley!

The Merrimack Valley experienced another dip in the unemployment rate, going from 4.2% in August to 3.8% in September! This is just above the State average (3.6%) but below the National average of 5.0%. Every community in the Lower Merrimack Valley Region WDA experienced a decline in unemployment rates, including Lawrence, which is at 6.4% – the lowest it has been since 2005. We hope to see this trend continue!
