Pa. Unemployment Rises

PA-Dept-of-Labor-and-Industry-logoThe April unemployment numbers jumped up a tenth of a point to 4.9%, breaking a four month streak of the rate falling.  It is the first time since August 2016 the rate increased.  

The unemployment rate sits half a point above the rate of 4.4%.  

According to the Department of Labor and Industry, the civilian labor force was up 22,000, and Resident employment increased by 18,000.  The unemployment count expanded by 4,000.  

If the trend continues, the Republicans running to challenge Governor Tom Wolf next year will talk more about their plans to bring jobs to the state.

    Irene McLaughlin Clark
    Rating: Not Recommended

    After graduating from law school, the candidate has been employed in a variety of positions handling civil litigation and divorce and custody proceedings. In 1993, the candidate was appointed to the Pittsburgh Municipal Court, where she continued to serve until 2003. Since that time, the candidate served in a variety of positions and maintained a private law practice addressing the problem of municipal blight. Although the candidate’s record demonstrates a commitment to justice and a strong work ethic, she has minimal experience that would lend itself to an appellate court position. The candidate has little courtroom experience as an advocate. Her experience with the rules of evidence and courtroom procedure is limited to the time she served as a Pittsburgh magistrate and Housing Court judge. The candidate candidly admitted that she had very limited experience as a trial or appellate advocate and no experience in writing briefs or opinions. This indicates to the commission that her exposure within the legal system is very narrow. Given the candidate’s minimal experience as outlined above, the commission does not recommend her candidacy for the Commonwealth Court.
