For the 16th consecutive year, Genesee County lost jobs from June to July, according to data released by the NYS Labor Department.
There are 500 fewer non-farm jobs locally, with a month-over-month drop from 23,900 to 23,400.
In 1997, the June-to-July job count for Genesee County for each month was 23,400 jobs.
Data from the labor department goes back to 1990 and in those 23 years, Genesee County has never found itself with more jobs in July than in June.
The county did gain jobs year-over-year, however, going from 23,100 jobs to 23,400.
