Report: Unemployment, jobs in CT dipped in January

The Connecticut Department of Labor issued a mixed labor analysis Friday, revising upwards the number of jobs created in 2013, while reporting that employment declined in January, even as the unemployment rate fell for a sixth consecutive month to 7.2 percent. Non-farm employment dropped 10,400 positions in January after hitting a post-recession high of 1,663,500 jobs in December, a fall partly blamed on the recent cold and snowy weather.
