Utah's Unemployment Rate Falls to 4.1%

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah's unemployment rate continued to drop last month when it fell to 4.1%, the lowest it has been since 2008.

Utah's jobless rate has remained below 5% since March 2013.

The Department of Workforce Services reported Friday that Utah's rate remains well below the national unemployment rate at 6.7% in December.

The nationwide unemployment dropped from 7% because about 350,000 unemployed workers left the workforce. 

Despite Utah's falling rate, DWS says December marked the fifth month in a row where Utah's job growth was below average.
