State says Nebraska’s June jobless rate unchanged at 3%

LINCOLN, Neb. – Officials say Nebraska’s unemployment rate remained unchanged in June at 3%.

The Nebraska Labor Department said in a news release Friday that the preliminary June rate matched the May rate and was two-tenths of a point higher than the June 2018 rate of 2.8%.

The new Nebraska rate is well below June’s national preliminary rate of 3.7% up a tenth of a point from 3.6% in May.

State Labor Commissioner John Albin says several industries, including mining and construction and financial activities, reached record high employment levels last month.
