Tools

By KMVT News

Twin Falls County, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) Just last year, the unemployment rate in Twin Falls County was at 5.9 percent.

Now this year, that rate has dropped to 4.9 percent.

A few factors can be attributed to the downturn.

These include new jobs, more online job opportunities, and consumer confidence going up.

Also, the workforce is coming back, with more new businesses being built around the area. The labor force needed has gone up.

And, of course, the creation of jobs from Chobani to Clif Bar have had a major impact.
