Nebraska jobless rate steady at 2.9 percent in July

Lincoln, Neb. — The Nebraska Labor Department says the state’s preliminary unemployment rate remained 2.9 percent in July, unchanged from the June figure.

The department said in a news release Friday that the rate also matched the July 2017 figure.

Last month’s rate remained well below the U.S. rate, which dropped to 3.9 percent in July from 4 percent in June.

State Labor Commissioner John Albin says July’s labor force employment “marks six straight months of record highs.”
