State says Nebraska jobless rate rose to 2.9 percent in June

State says Nebraska jobless rate rose to 2.9 percent in June

The Nebraska Labor Department says the state’s preliminary June unemployment rate rose a tenth of a point to hit 2.9 percent.

The department said in a news release Friday that the rate matches the June 2017 figure.

Last month’s rate remained well below the U.S. rate, which rose to 4 percent last month from 3.8 percent in May.

State Labor Commissioner John Albin says total non-farm employment continued to climb in June, reaching another high.
