Statistics released late last week indicate that Roane County’s employment situation continues to look better.
The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development reports the county’s March unemployment rate at 7.5 percent, a decrease of 0.3 percent.
That means 25,620 workers in the county’s 27,700 labor force were employed last month.
Those numbers are also better than the same period last year, when Roane County recorded a jobless rate at 7.9 percent.
