General Unemployment Resources

Did you know?

Between 1992 and 2000, welfare receipt declined in the county, and employment among welfare recipients increased. The economy and other factors appear to have driven these trends, as they did not change after the 1996 law went into effect.

Commonly forgotten, marital disputes also influence employment: Growing unemployment rate due to greater divorce/time out of work (paternity, maternity)
