Binghamton Jobs Report Glows Less Than State Report

A key component to the read on the local economy is jobs statistics.
A new report shows that, statewide, unemployment is down to 5.2 percent. This is its lowest rate since May 2008, the early stages of the Great Recession.

But the report also notes that in Binghamton, 103,400 jobs were reported for August of 2015. This is down from 103,600 in July. For the year, Binghamton jobs are down .4 percent.
