Justice Touts Record Low Unemployment Numbers

October 21st, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Governor Jim Justice announced Wednesday that West Virginia’s not seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased to 3.2% for September 2021; the lowest such rate recorded in all of state history. Justice attributed this achievement to the efforts of his administration to make West Virginia a more business-friendly state, as well as standing behind the energy industry- at a time when there has been  growing pressure for states to move away from goal and oil.
