BOISE - Idaho's unemployment rate has dropped again.

The jobless rate for October was 7 percent. That's the lowest in three-and-a-half years.

But the Labor Department tells us more than 7,000 workers have left the workforce since May, meaning they are no longer working or actively seeking jobs.

However, the number of employed Idahoans is just under 721,000 and was more than 14,000 higher than October of 2011.
