Roane County’s unemployment rate was up just shy of a point in June, according to statistics released late last week from the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
The state’s figures indicate the county’s rate for the month was 8.2 percent, an increase of 0.8 over May’s 7.4 percent.
That means 26,090 workers in the county’s 28,430 labor force were employed during June.
Though on the rise, the county rate in June 2011 was lower, at 8.8 percent, state statistics show.
