Puerto Rico Employment Information


Puerto Rico Overview


The past four years have challenged Puerto Rico’s economy, but the Puerto Rico job market may be improving. Real gross domestic investment rose 11.5 percent in FY 2010-2011 and domestic demand grew for the first time in three years, reports a Banco Popular economic analysis. However, even though many people have dropped out of the labor force, unemployment is still significantly higher than the US rate.
