October unemployment rate lower, but still high

by susan on December 1, 2009

After reaching its highest level in at least 20 years last month, the unemployment rate in Southborough fell more than half a point to 6.8% in October. That’s still a high rate for our town. Before this year, the last time the unemployment rate was that high was in January 1992 when it reached 6.6%.

The unemployment rate in Massachusetts also fell from 9.3% in September to 8.4% in October. The national rate held steady at 9.5%.
