California adds 82600 jobs in July; unemployment rate rises to 4.8%

Tennessee's rate of 3.4 percent is also a record low for that state.

The unemployment rates for cities have not been seasonally adjusted, so they can not be directly compared with the state unemployment rate. "Our workforce development agencies remain committed to closing that skills gap and helping the chronically unemployed receive the training they need to access a successful career in MA". "Financial activities, professional and businesses services, leisure and hospitality, and other services all reached new employment highs in July", Commissioner of Labor John H. Albin said in a news release.

Total seasonally adjusted private-sector jobs, when compared to July 2016 figures, increased by 15,400 to 1,661,500, even though the number of seasonally adjusted private-sector jobs decreased by 2,900 jobs from June 2017.

The labor force was up 110,700 from the 3,586,900 in July 2016, with 77,700 more residents employed and 33,000 more residents unemployed. So far, wage gains nationwide remain at about 2.5 percent a year, below the 3.5 percent pace normally associated with a healthy economy. Only Oklahoma was lower at 1.1 percent.

Local and federal government, and health care were the only industries to gain jobs during the year.

The long-term challenge of developing the state's workforce to meet employer demand of more than one million jobs over the next 10 years remains the Department of Workforce Development's top priority, he added.

Annually, unemployment insurance benefit payments were down almost 16 percent - from $1.4 million a year ago to $1.2 million in July 2017. Lewiston (up 1 percent) experienced the largest percentage job increase, followed closely by Idaho Falls (up 0.9 percent), Coeur d'Alene (up 0.8 percent) and Boise (up 0.6 percent). The state lost an estimated 700 jobs.

Downtown, the job growth was primarily in the leisure and hospitality sector, which includes positions in bars, restaurants and entertainment venues. Government reported the largest decline, down 1,100.
