The new unemployment numbers are in and it doesn't look good. More people are out of a job in Mesa County, the state and across the country.
Newly released statistics from the workforce center show Mesa County was at 4.6 percent in December, up from 4.3 just a month earlier.
Across the state, the unemployment rate jumped to 6.1 percent. And across the US, it stands at 7.2 percent.
The Workforce Center says Mesa County's numbers, although up, are still far below the national average - which is a good sign that our local economy is riding out the storm.
