Colorado Experiencing Lowest Unemployment Rate in Seven Years

Pasadena, CA – There is something about Colorado that attracts people. Despite being landlocked, the wide array of outdoor activities ranging from the highest peaks of the Rocky Mountains to the red rocks of the Southern deserts, keeps its residents active all year. With this success in bringing people to the state with their lower cost of living but competitive wages, Colorado is experiencing its lowest employment rate in eight years.

August 2007 was the last time Colorado saw their unemployment rate at 3.8 percent until now. The rate fell from 4 percent to 3.8 percent right before the holiday season starts, promising good numbers for the next two months at least. The best unemployment rate was before the recession at 3.5 percent. Let Granted.com be your source to finding a job in this ideal location.
