AR Unemployment Climbs to 3.5 Percent in August

Colorado employers added 4,400 non-farm jobs to their payrolls in August

The Kansas Department of Labor says the state's unemployment rate rose to 3.9 percent in August, an increase of two-tenths of a percent from July. It says there is recent precedent for that possibility, noting that both 2014 and 2015, Delaware's unemployment rate rose above the national rate, only to later be revised back down below it.

Total nonfarm jobs in Pennsylvania were up 1.0 percent from August 2016, while jobs in the United States were up 1.4 percent.

Unemployment in the state's 17 labor markets range from a low of 2.5 percent in White River Junction and Burlington to 4.8 percent in Derby.

Private employers still have added 42,400 jobs over the past year. Compared to the previous August, private sector jobs were up by 57,900, or 2.6 percent.

EDD said six of California's eleven major industry sectors added a combined 22,200 jobs in August. Trade, transportation and utilities added the most jobs in August at 1,400, while jobs in other services grew the fastest at 2.9 percent. As a result, job gains over the year stand at 6,000. New Mexico saw the largest percentage increase, followed by New Hampshire and Maryland. The categories with the biggest job gains were leisure and hospitality and professional and business services.
