Shortage of workers continues to affect job growth in Minnesota


September 20, 2019

Minnesota managed to end August with 1,100 more jobs, but a continued shortage of workers mixed with myriad other economic concerns continue to affect growth in the state.

The hiring uptick halted months of increases in Minnesota’s unemployment rate, state officials said Thursday. The unemployment rate has been rising on and off since October 2018, when it was 2.8%. The rate hit 3.4% in July and slid to 3.3% in August.
