unemployment Minnesota Unemployment Holds Steady

September jobless rate holds at 7 percent

Minnesota lost nearly 10-thousand jobs in September, yet the unemployment rate held steady at seven percent. That’s the finding of the monthly survey by the state Department of Employment and Economic Development. Commissioner Dan McElroy says a very encouraging sign is that Minnesotans are working more hours. 

Even at seven percent, Minnesota’s jobless rate is still nearly three percentage points below the national rate.
