Tennessee Unemployment Rate Lowest Since Recession

Tennessee’s unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since November 2008. The drop in March to 7.9 percent marks the eighth straight month of decline. Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Karla Davis says the state lost jobs in March, but the number of unemployed declined at a faster rate. The national unemployment average is 8.2 percent.
