More than a year after the website’s original launch, the unemployment website for New Jersey remains struggling, as employers continue to struggle to fill jobs.
The website, which launched in November, shows the unemployment rate for every job in the state and allows anyone to see the unemployment rates for their job.
It was set up to help people find a job, but the website has become the focus of controversy after some employers have complained the data, which shows unemployment in every job category, is inaccurate.
The site has struggled to keep up with demand, and the state’s unemployment rate of 5.4 percent is the lowest in the country.
The New Jersey unemployment rate dropped to 4.8 percent on Monday, and many companies are struggling to find enough workers to fill the jobs they need.
In October, the state reported the lowest jobless rate in a decade, but has seen job growth slow this year.
The state has seen an uptick in hiring in recent months, but that growth has been uneven and slow.
The latest data released by the Department of Labor and Industries show that the number of jobs filled on the website in September was up 0.3 percent compared to a year ago, and that more people are working than were looking for.
The number of workers who are unemployed in the New Jersey economy, according to the report, was 5.1 percent, the lowest since June 2007.
