Unemployment in New Bedford always seems to be twice the state average. As of April, 2013, the Massachusetts unemployment rate was at 6.4% and New Bedford’s sat at 12.5%. It’s a sad fact that we live in a state with a low unemployment rate compared to the national average, but New Bedford seems to continuously get left behind. I can say for a fact that there are plenty of jobs out there. There are generally 8,000+ jobs within 50 miles of New Bedford on our Job Portal.
