There are interesting new numbers from the New York State Labor Department on unemployment rates.

Herkimer County is one of only two counties in the state to see the rate go up.

In Herkimer County, unemployment is at 5.1 percent – up just about a point from this time last year.

No word on if this is related to the furlough at Remington Arms, which is slated to end August 12.

In Oneida County, unemployment sits at 3.7 percent, and in Otsego County, 3.5 percent.
