The unemployment rates have been released and it looks like we're heading in the wrong direction. The unemployment rate for this economic region, which stretches from Kingston to Pembroke is currently sitting at 6.9 percent, which is slightly up from last month where we saw a rate of 6.6. However, the rate has skyrocketed from this time last year when we were sitting at 5.7 percent. As a nation, we have an unemployment rate of 6.4 which is just above the provincial rate of 6.3.
