There is job growth here in Niagara County, but it's awfully slow according to figures released by the state labor department on Tuesday. 

The study said March saw 10,300 county residents without work, which was better than the 11,000 from February. It's still not great news, however, as the county has a 9.3 percent unemployment rate.

Lockport's numbers were roughly the same with 1,100 residents out of work.
