According to the Idaho Department of Labor, the Gem State’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is more than on the mend.

In fact, it’s thriving like your ex’s post break-up revenge body.

The first quarter of 2022 saw a historically low seasonally adjusted unemployment rate of 2.7% back in March—the lowest rate ever recorded since the IDL started keeping books in 1976.

Help Wanted Online is a national index that measures change in advertised digital job postings and monthly employment trends.

One month after Idaho’s unemployment rate "hit pan," HWOL reported “2.1 job openings for every unemployed Idahoan looking for work.”

But despite the celebratory record low, Gem State employers remain hamstrung in the surge to fill employment vacancies. Put another way, Idaho has more jobs than it has citizens to fill them, spurring employers to “hire people that may have been once overlooked, like teens and young adults.”
