Kansas unemployment rate lowest since 2000


The Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) preliminary job estimates indicate MA added 4,800 jobs in October.

Statistics show annual growth is strongest in the leisure and hospitality sector, with 7,100 jobs added. The September estimate was revised to a gain of 10,300 jobs.

The state's jobs engine is humming along, according to John Albin, the Labor Department commissioner.

The statewide figures put Nebraska in good company among states with the country's lowest unemployment rates. But not all communities and regions are feeling the benefits of this economy equally. The October rate also remained well below the US rate, which dipped slightly to 4.1 percent for the month.
