Nebraska jobless rate 2.8 percent for 4th month in a row

Lincoln, Neb. —  Nebraska Labor Department figures show the state’s November unemployment rate of 2.8 percent matches the three previous months’ figures.

The department said in a news release Friday that the preliminary November rate is down a tenth of a point from the year-ago figure of 2.9 percent.

Last month’s Nebraska rate was well below the U.S. number, which also was unchanged: 3.7 percent.

State Labor Commissioner John Albin says November was another strong month for manufacturing, with a 3 percent employment increase over the year.
