MN August 2013 Unemployment Rate at 5.1%

Post by kasallan on Sun Sep 22, 2013 5:49 pm

More good news for Minnesota.  The State's unemployment rate fell again in August 2013 to just 5.1%.  This is the lowest rate for the state in all of 2013 and the lowest since another 5.1% rate way back in April 2008 (over 5 years).  Good to see the recent downward trend continue!

RI went up again. We're over 9% again. I don't think it will ever end in this part of the country. Oh, I forgot, there was good news........400 retail jobs created! Very creative, they cut the hours of those already employed to 24 hrs. a week or less, and hired new part time employees to cover the hours to avoid providing healthcare. All these jobs at $7.75 an hour, minimum wage here. Yep, things are looking up!Mad

Conn LOST 6000 jobs and is at 8.1. At 58 I have known for a few years I will never work a conventional job again, even 20 hour no benefit one. Now the Repugs in the House want me to loss my Food Stamps too. Twisted Evil

Hi, Nutty! Good to hear from you. I just moved over the line to CT (Killingly area) hoping to be closer to decent jobs. I know I'll never find anything worthwhile, especially at age 57, don't know why I keep trying.

In Jersey, it's at 8.5%, down from 8.6% despite losing another 1,500 jobs. We all know that means more discouraged workers simply stopped looking ("Let me know when there are REAL jobs out there!")
