Virginia's jobless rate continues to fall

Posted April 22, 2017

"Hawaii's economy continues to perform well with employment at historical highs and unemployment rates at near-record lows", said Linda Chu Takayama, Director of the state Department of Labor and Industrial Relations.

Preliminary estimates from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics reveal MA added just 200 new jobs last month - far fewer than the more than 11,000 additional jobs the bureau calculates for February.

The largest over the month private sector job gains were in leisure and hospitality, financial activities, and education and health services, the state reports.

"The rate dropped as we saw more than 19,000 people become employed and Georgia employers continued to create jobs", said State Labor Commissioner Mark Butler.

The state's unemployment rate is 0.4 percentage points higher than the national unemployment rate reported for March 2017, which decreased to 4.5 percent.

As of January, unemployment rates in Virginia Beach were at 4 percent but increased to 4.5 percent in February.
