As recovery slows, Minnesota jobs agency calls thousands to point out openings


David Joles, Star Tribune

Hiring slowed sharply in Minnesota last month, mirroring the national trend as the turnaround from the pandemic ran into headwinds.

The state's jobs agency is calling thousands of out-of-work Minnesotans every week as it looks to help workers with their job search and point them to other available openings.

Steve Grove, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), emphasized that effort as new data was released Thursday showing that the state's jobs recovery slowed in April. The state gained 11,300 jobs last month, the fewest in any month so far this year.

Minnesota added almost double that amount in March, 20,400 jobs, a number which was slightly revised downward. It gained 12,400 jobs in February and 51,600 jobs in January.
