France ILO Jobless Rate At 5-year Low

Washington unemployment rate drops to 4.6 percent

CT lost 1,500 jobs in April, as the unemployment rate increased one tenth of a point to 4.9 percent, according to preliminary figures released Thursday by the state Department of Labor.

This view is supported by data available with the labor bureau, which shows that job creation could actually be at the lowest in the last eight years.

Kentucky's seasonally adjusted preliminary April unemployment rate was 5.1 percent, according to the Office of Employment and Training, an agency of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.

The biggest employment gains came from the professional, scientific and business services sector, which added 6,100 jobs in April and 18,100 in a year-over-year analysis.

Small increases in the unemployment rate accompanied by larger increases in the labor force for the fourth consecutive month continue "to indicate that workers are entering or rejoining the labor force and many are finding work", he said.

The unemployment rate at this time past year was 5 percent. There were 300 more unemployed persons over the year compared to April 2016. South Australia also the largest increase in the unemployment rate ( up 0.3%). Sectors that gained in include construction, other services, and leisure and hospitality.

MA employers added 3,900 jobs in April, rebounding after a sluggish March. Both these sectors are known for low paying jobs.

March's job gain was revised downward to 600, from an initially reported increase of 1,300. Over the year, claims were down by 4,712, or 17.9 percent, from 26,345 in April 2016, with manufacturing and administrative and support services again contributing to the decline.

Trade, transportation, and utilities sector decreased by 1,300 from March 2017 to April 2017.

Futures markets imply the figures have had no real impact on investor bets about the future of Reserve Bank of Australia interest rate decisions, with rates set to stay steady for most of the next 12 months. But the pace of raises slowed since December's 2.9% increase-the strongest gain since June 2009.
