Setting Records: NH Records Lowest Unemployment Rate Ever

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement after the NH Department of Employment Security announced a 2% state unemployment rate, the lowest ever recorded rate in state history:
 

“New Hampshire had the fastest growing economy in the nation last quarter, and now, for the first time ever, we have an unemployment rate of 2% — a record in the 603,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “None of this would be possible without the countless employees across the state who make New Hampshire the best state to live, work, and raise a family. We cannot thank you enough!”
