Unemployment Recovery Still Slow On Delmarva

Posted: Updated:

DELMARVA – For many on Delmarva, Labor Day wasn't a break from work, because there was no work from which a break could be taken.

The latest statistics show that in Delaware, out of the 450,000 person work-force, about 28,000 people are unemployed, 6.2%.

In Maryland, the percentage of the workforce without a job sits at 6.7, but on the Eastern Shore, the number is even higher. Wicomico, Dorchester, and Worcester report an average of 7.6%. In Somerset county, it's nearly double-digits, at 9.8%. Some relatively good news to report in Talbot county though, where the rate is just below 6%, at 5.9%.
