JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

The ETSU Bureau of Business and Economic Research released its Tri-Cities Labor market report today for the third quarter and it showed some good news.

We learned the Tri-Cities continued to add new jobs.

We are told there was growth in jobs, leading to another decline in the unemployment rate in all three cities.

"It could be stronger compared to what we have seen nationally over the last few years, this has been a good year. We're starting to see the foundation perhaps of a movement back to full employment," said ETSU economic professor Dr. Steb Hipple.

We learned Education and Health Services led the job growth.
