State's unemployment rate at 5 percent in May

California's unemployment rate fell to a record-tying low of 4.7 percent in May, but experts still maintained that the state's economy is slowing down.

OC added 1,500 nonfarm jobs for 1.6 million employees.

Maine's unemployment rate achieved 3.0 percent in March, the lowest in 40 years.

Sectors that lost jobs over the year were: manufacturing, which includes winemaking, down 1,900 to 20,400; and financial activities, down 200 to 8,300.

"Leisure and hospitality led job losses this month, down for the fourth straight month", Kelly said. The state total was 2,645,600 jobs. The unemployment rate in May stayed at 3.1 percent for the third straight month. "We are adding jobs over time, and that helps consumers, more people working and more people able to spend money".

The largest drop in jobs occurred in the construction field, which shed 4,300 positions.

Zeller said the growth in government jobs in May was promising.

In Douglas County, unemployment climbed three-tenths of a point in May to 3.3 percent, the same as it was in May 2016. "I encourage unemployed and underemployed Hoosiers to be steadfast in their job searches and consider training and placement opportunities available at their local WorkOne Career Center".

Bamberg County has the highest reported unemployment rate at 6.7 percent. The rate represents the percentage of the population that is either employed or jobless, but actively seeking work. Manufacturing and construction employment was down this month.
