CB Unemployment Takes Slight Dip
Cape Breton’s unemployment rate went down slightly last month.
The 14% jobless rate was half a percentage point lower in November compared to October, but it was 1.2 percentage points higher than November of last year.
Nova Scotia’s unemployment rate was 8.8 percent last month, up slightly from October.
Nationally, unemployment went down to 5.9%.
That’s the lowest rate since February 2008.
Statscan says the decrease followed the addition of almost 80,000 net new jobs in November.
