Vermont October jobless rate stays at 2.9 percent

Maine unemployment dips to 3.5% in October

A surge in the number of Idahoans sixteen years of age and older either working or looking for work in October increased the pool of available workers for employment - and pushed the state's unemployment rate up to 2.9 percent, labor officials said. The September estimate was revised to a gain of 10,300 jobs. The state has picked up an estimated 69,000 jobs in the past 12 months.

State and local unemployment rates are at their lowest levels in almost two decades. But she adds not all communities and regions of the state are benefiting equally from this growth.

The Kansas Department of Labor says over 3,300 Kansans became employed last month.

And it's three-tenths of a percent better than that rate of 4.1 percent, which was the lowest in nearly 17 years. According to monthly data going back to 1990 kept by the DLIR, Hawaii County's unemployment rate has never dropped below 2.3 percent.




Idaho's unemployment rate increased a tenth of a percent to 2.9 percent in October.

The private service-providing sector, at 3,863,100, lost 2,000 jobs.

Maine's unemployment rate was lower than the national rate of 4.1 percent and the New England rate of 3.8 percent, which also both dipped slightly from the previous month.
