Unemployment Down in Binghamton

By Jason Weinstein.
The unemployment rate in Binghamton continues to drop. The jobless rate was 5.2% in October, down from 5.6% in October of 2014.

The total labor force in Binghamton continued to shrink over that period of time, though. Tt's down by 1,200 people over the past year. The worst performing sector was leisure and hospitality, which saw a drop of over nine percent over the past year. The best- performing sector? That would be retail trade, which saw a jump in jobs of over four percent.
