Minnesota employers add 7,200 jobs in November


Employers in Minnesota added 7,200 jobs in November, the state said Thursday, a welcome rebound from several months of tepid job gains.

Minnesota's unemployment rate fell 0.2 percentage points in November to a seasonally adjusted 3.5 percent. The U.S. unemployment rate in November was 5 percent.

The figures, combined with October numbers that were revised from 1,700 jobs lost to 200 jobs gained, brought total job gains in the state to 32,130 over the past 12 months, the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) said.
