Ohio Unemployment Rate Drops Slightly In October

Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta says the lower unemployment rate and jobs growth indicate the "ongoing strength of the economy in MA".

The unemployment rate remains the same at 3.9 percent, according to the Department of Workforce.

The national rate was 4.1 percent in October, down from 4.2 percent in September and 4.8 percent in October 2016.

According to Cheryl Stanton, executive director of the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce, "Last month South Carolina's robust economy grew further, with businesses hiring more people in almost every industry sector". It was also slightly down from 3.9 percent a year ago.

The number of Rhode Island-based jobs was up by 4,600 from a year ago.

"For the fourth consecutive month, both resident employment and unemployment declined", a news release from the department said.

The state unemployment rate decreased from 5.3 percent in September and was slightly higher than the 5 percent rate of October 2016.

Omaha's unemployment rate for October was 2.4 percent, down from 2.7 percent in September and 3.1 percent in October of a year ago.
