Jobless Report



The unemployment rate in Minnesota dropped slightly in June according to the latest figures from the Department of Employment and Economic Development.
                The unemployment rate in June fell to 5-point-2 percent, down one tenth of a percent from May, compared to a national rate of 7-point-6 percent.
                 Spokesman Steve Hine said a downturn in the labor force was one reason for the drop in Minnesota.

State employers added 400 new jobs in June. A 25-hundred increase in private sector hiring was offset by a 21-hundred drop in government employment......
 
                Professional and business services added 36-hundred jobs last month to lead all sectors. Other gains were in trade, transportation and utilities.
