Granite State continues to lead the national economy recovery
Concord - The New Hampshire Employment and Security Department reported today that the state unemployment rate for June fell below 6%, to 5.9%, which is now 38% below the national rate. That is a reduction of .5% from last month, and marks the fourth month in a row that the unemployment rate has fallen in the Granite State.
"Be it job creation initiatives like New Hampshire Working, programs helping to lower small businesses' health care costs, or innovative new proposals like the Green Launching Pad, Democrats have been working hard for the citizens of New Hampshire, rebuilding our economy for the long term and creating new jobs.
"This great news also provides a sharp contrast to the Republican Party's lack of leadership during the past several years. They have toured the state telling people it's ruined, and made nothing but irresponsible and reckless proposals. Clearly, the report today flies in the face of their campaign of misinformation and partisan attacks."
