Washington County hit a record low jobless rate of 2.6 percent in November 1999, according to Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation figures released Friday. The low rate - a decline of two-tenths of a percentage point from October 1999 - mainly reflects strong seasonal retail hiring and few layoffs in the construction industry thanks to mild weather, said Bruce Massey, unemployment insurance supervisor at the labor department's Hagerstown office. The county's jobless rate was 3.4 percent in November 1998, according to labor department figures.
