  • Unemployed increase as Mass. economy slows

    The Boston Globe - 09/20/2013

    The Massachusetts unemployment rate is just slightly below the 7.3 percent national rate, which has declined recently.

    “Recent employment growth has been slow,” said Northeastern University economist Alan Clayton-Matthews. “The number of jobs is not increasing, but people are entering the labor force. That’s driving the number of unemployed up and the unemployment rate.”
