The Connecticut labor market remains tight, while growth is painfully slow — increasing by just four-tenths of one percent from November 2018.
Connecticut added 2,800 jobs in August but its unemployment rate remained unchanged at 3.6 percent, the state Department of Labor reported Thursday.
The state’s unemployment rate dropped slightly in August, falling from 5.4 to 5.3 percent as Connecticut added 3,200 non-farm jobs last month, the Department of Labor reported Thursday.
Connecticut’s unemployment rate dropped slightly to 6.4 percent in December, buoyed by 4,800 new jobs created during the holiday shopping season, the state Labor Department reported Monday. The state closed 2014 with 26,700 jobs gained, up from the 18,400 positions added in 2013. Connecticut now has regained 96,300, or 80.9 percent, of the 119,100 jobs lost during the last recession.
Connecticut’s jobless rate remained fixed at 6.4 percent in October, despite the addition of about 3,600 new jobs, the state Department of Labor reported Thursday. The agency’s latest report also downgraded job growth estimates it had released two weeks before Election Day.
