Speak Up: Delaware recovers jobs, as employees are reminded of rights

Posted

Data suggests a slow recovery for Delaware, much like the nation, from the fiscal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the decrease in jobs last year. The Delaware Department of Labor’s monthly review for July reports that the state’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 5.6%, compared to 5.8% in June. The state’s unemployment rate has fluctuated between 5% and 6%, since dropping from more than 7% in September 2020.

  • We’d be much further ahead if Biden weren’t preventing the economic recovery. — Bob Hice
  • Hiring substandard workers. — Howard Gaines III
  • Everyone is hiring. No excuse for not finding a job — Jack Jordan
  • No excuse for not providing better pay. — Pete Schonert
  • Better pay? In some cases, companies with starter jobs have gone from $12 to $20 an hour or more. You can get a job behind a cash register for more than ever. If you cannot live in Delaware for the wages being paid at many companies, you’ve got a host of problems. Go find a better job because they are everywhere.  — Greg Shenenberger
