Unemployment rates in Alabama hit record lows”

Unemployment rates in 13 states hit their lowest points in 40 years this year, data released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed.

On Maui, the unemployment rate was at 2% on Maui Island, up slightly from the 1.9% rate in October and down from the 3% reported at the same time previous year.

The state labor department says that while job losses continue in Alaska, they have "moderated noticeably" in the second half of this year. That's the lowest unemployment rate on record dating back to 1976, under current methodology, according to Department director Linda Chu Takayama. In the U.S.as a whole, the unemployment rate in November was 4.1 percent compared with 4.6 percent in November 2016.

Texas employers added 54,500 workers to their payrolls in November, bringing the statewide unemployment rate to the lowest level in four decades, the Texas Workforce Commission said Friday. Madison County's rate also increased by one-tenth of a percent from 3 to 3.1 percent. Two industry sectors reported job declines over the month, down a total of 8,200 jobs. Job totals have essentially been unchanged in 23 other states. The unemployment rate was below 2.7 percent in Nebraska, New Hampshire and North Dakota. The state's leisure and hospitality industry saw the biggest gains between October and November. "Jobs are created when companies put capital at risk, and our unemployment rate figures reflect that our policies are attracting companies to Tennessee".
