Since the start of the year 2012, Denver has been struggling to provide more jobs to the people and therefore they have not managed to fair better in the unemployment ratio this year. As per the information provided by Colorado Department of Labor and Employment the unemployment rate in Denver has improved but the city still needs more efforts to make sure that they are out of danger sign. The unemployment rate in Denver was 8.8% but now has gone down to 8.2% in the first quarter of the year 2012.
The Metro Denver unemployment rate has been the same for the last three months and the city officials have not been able to make any progress on it. The city officials calculated the numbers when they have included ten county area like Denver, Lakewood, Aurora, Broomfield and Centennial, but they have excluded the Boulder County. If you include the reports from Boulder County the rate of unemployment in the city would be something close to 8.1% which is again not a much difference. The city officials are now thinking about how they can provide better business environment to the people so that they can hire more candidates and employ more people. The report also claims that although there has been gradual growth in the city it is not enough to take over the unemployment situation that has caught the city.
