Maui Unemployment Rate at 3.2% in June”

The unemployment rate in the Florence MSA (Metropolitan Statistical Area) that consists of Florence and Darlington counties is 4.7 percent. Unemployment now is at the lowest level in the commonwealth since April 2008. The national unemployment rate for June was 4.4 percent.

Bamberg County's unemployment rate for June was 7.6 percent, up from 6.7 percent in May.

But while job gains improved the first half of this year compared with last, the agency expressed concerns that the size of the labor force has declined for the fourth consecutive month.

Thirty-three states have seen measurable increases in the number of non-farm jobs over the past year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported, as the unemployment rate continues to fall nationwide.

Nonfarm payroll jobs in California totaled 16,703,300 in June, according to a survey of businesses that is larger and less variable statistically.

Calhoun County had the lowest jobless rate in the region at 4.9 percent in June.

"The unemployment rate increase and a decline in construction payroll are troublesome, but the trend of declining labor force is something we can not ignore", Illinois Department of Employment Security Director Jeff Mays said. In June, the Professional and Business Services sector gained 3,500 jobs in IN, while Private Educational and Health Services added another 3,000 jobs.

About 500 industry sector jobs were lost locally during the month, Weaver wrote, with about 100 jobs being lost in the farming industry and the other 400 lost in non-farming industries.

Eight of California's eleven industry sectors added a total of 274,000 jobs year-over.

Illinois' labor force participation rate - the share of the population working or trying to - hit 64.4 percent, the lowest since 1979.

In Dillon County, the rate has dropped from 6.9 percent to 5.6 percent. That is down from 6.9 percent a year ago.
