Kitsap Unemployment Rate for July Continues Gentle Downward Slide


The unemployment rate came in at 7.1 percent for July, down from 7.3 percent the month before.

Huge gains in the private sector, a total of 300 jobs.

But that was offset by the sharp loss of 200 retail jobs.

Which came to a net private-sector jobs gain of 100.

On the government side, 200 jobs state and local level jobs were lost in Kitsap County in July. They appeared to be across the board. Federal level was stable.

Look for more soon.
