23 December 2017, 12:57 | Simon Arnold

State's jobless rate 4.5%

Maine jobless rate of 3.3 percent continues streak

New Mexico still has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation, according to U.S. Department of Labor figures released Friday.

The state did add 9,800 jobs over the prior month and the number of unemployed people dropped slightly, but it wasn't enough to move the jobless rate.


The Oklahoma commission reports that the mining and logging industry added 900 jobs during the month and both the manufacturing and information industries each added 300 jobs.

Nebraska continues to be among the states with the lowest unemployment rates, and is logging rates much lower than the rest of the country.


The unemployment rate was below the statewide average in the Portland-South Portland (2.4 percent) metro area and close to the average in the Lewiston-Auburn (2.7 percent) and Bangor (2.9 percent) metro areas.

But the private sector shed 4,200 jobs in November, primarily in the trade, transportation, and utilities sector, as well as leisure and hospitality jobs.


The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state's November jobless rate was 6.1 percent, the same as October. December's numbers are expected in late January of 2018.
