Jobs Briefs

Public Assets Institute’s Monthly Jobs Briefs will be released on the same day that the Vermont Department of Labor issues its monthly employment and unemployment statistics. Our reports will provide additional information and context for the official state statistics and are meant to complement the Department of Labor information.

The Public Assets reports will draw from data available from the U.S. Census, the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, Economic Policy Institute, Center on Budget and Policies Priorities, National Employment Law Project and the Vermont Department of Labor.
