Idaho shatters another record for jobs


Boise, Idaho - Governor Brad Little commented today on the announcement that the State of Idaho shattered another all-time record for jobs, achieving the historic unemployment rate of 2.4-percent in December.

Idaho remains in the top five states with the lowest unemployment rates in the country.

"Idaho's economy is booming and people are working at historic rates, proving that the conservative principles of cutting taxes, slashing regulations, and making investments where they matter most lead to opportunity and prosperity for the people. Thank you to Idaho workers and employers big and small for our success! My LEADING IDAHO plan keeps us on this path of prosperity by using our record budget surplus to give back to the people through historic tax relief and significant investments in education, transportation, water, and other areas that impact people's daily lives," Governor Little said.
