Tn unemployment June 2023

Tennessee’s June unemployment rate reached an all-time low of 3.2%, the same historic low the state first reached prior to the pandemic in 2020. The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD) said the 0.1% drop from last month ties June's unemployment rate with both pre-pandemic and June 2022 historic lows. In the past year, employers have created 84,600 new jobs across the state with the biggest gains coming in the education and health services sectors. Government still saw the most month-over-month growth followed by the professional and business sector and manufacturing sector.
