Minnesota released its April unemployment report on Thursday and while the state’s jobless rate dropped to a seasonably adjusted 5.3 percent, employers eliminated more than 11,000 jobs last month.
Minnesota added 9,100 jobs in December, bringing unemployment rates in the state down to levels not seen since before the financial crisis of 2008.
The state’s unemployment rate dropped a tenth of a point to 5.8 percent in September, a full two percentage points better than the national rate.
Minnesota gained 6,200 jobs in February, but the unemployment rate popped up 0.1 percent, according to figures released Thursday by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED).
Prime Therapeutics, an Eagan-based company in Minnesota, plans to add 300 information technology and business analyst jobs through a state loan.
Minnesota’s unemployment rate dipped to 7 percent in December, but the state also lost jobs last month.
