Unemployment Down in Maryland, or So it Seems

Unemployment Down in Maryland, or So it Seems

The Baltimore Sun today reported that while employers in the state shed nearly 6,000 jobs, more people were working.

This does not seem to be the same phenomenon we’ve seen before, that many people give up looking for jobs, so they are no longer counted in the potential workforce.  Maryland’s unemployment rate is now a respectable 6.9%.  The article said instead that more people were commuting out of state, or had started their own businesses.
