"This new subscription service will make it easier for jobseekers, businesses, the media and others to get up-to-the-minute updates and announcements from the Department of Labor," Commissioner Gardner said. "It's part of our continuing effort to let the public and business community know about the services we offer in a timely and easy-to-access manner."

The State Labor Department launched its blog in late February of 2010.  A variety of topics are included, from job seeker success stories to announcements about new information materials available for businesses. The blog averages about 1,000 hits per day, and those numbers are increasing.
