LaRue County’s unemployment rate has almost doubled in a year. In October 2008, it boasted one of the lowest rates in the state at 6.8 percent.
It’s now 12.9 percent, according to statistics from the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet. The rate is second highest in the Lincoln Trail Region, with only Grayson County being higher at 16.5 percent.
That means about 1,000 LaRue Countians are out of work and competing for jobs.
According to Julita Nance of the Office of Employment and Training, the competition is fierce.
