The Winchester, VA unemployment rate dropped to 6.5% in the month of September.  That is an Down Arrowimprovement of 1.3% since September 2011.  While the nation still hovers at 7.9%, Winchester is starting to feel a positive trend in employment.

The surrounding county has also seen a minor rate drop since the same period last year.  Frederick County unemployment numbers came in at 5.3%.  That's a .1% change from August of 2012, but it's a .7% change from September 2011.  

There has been a number of new businesses moving to the area over the past 12 months.  Unfortunately for many job hunters, they've offered more part-time work than full-time positions.  So, there is still sufficient room for improvement in the local economy, but any good news is welcome as we enter into the holiday season.

It has been a very slow trend here, Roger.  Fortunately, it's moving in the right direction.  I think more people will begin hiring after the election.  At least I hope so.  Our electrical company receives resumes every month.  So, I know there are a lot of people still looking.
