    The unemployment rate amoung Huron, Perth, Bruce and Grey counties dropped to 3% in the month of June. Thats the lowest in the province. 4 County Labour Market Planning Board Executive Director Gemma Mendez-Smith says that having a low unemployment rate doesn't always bring good news.

    Mendez Smith says that these numbers prove that initiatives like the workforce attraction and retention that the county of Huron is implementing is vital to improve the local company. Mendez Smith says that order to bring more workers into the area municipalities and counties would benefit from focusing on things like housing, childcare and creating inclusive programs for new families.
