Unemployment in Albania drops

Florida's annual job growth rate of 1.9 percent continues to exceed the national rate of 1.7 percent.

The national unemployment rate was unchanged from December at 4.1 percent. The unemployment rate in Flagler is a full percentage point below where it was a year ago. Both have stayed in place since then. The New England average for January was 3.7 percent.

Today, Governor Rick Scott announced that Florida businesses created more than 10,000 private-sector jobs in January. So those states have not enjoyed unemployment so low in at least 42 years.

Florida's overall growth rate for past year was 1.8 percent, which was the 10th highest rate in the nation.

A total of 85,879 individuals had gained a job since January 2017, while another 20,263 dropped out of the job market, for an overall increase to the labor force of 65,616. Other industry gains this month included education, construction, accommodations and food services, and finance and insurance. Many employers have said they're unable to add jobs because there is a lack of available talent with the right qualifications. State jobs were made up by 1,700 jobs added to local government payrolls, a 0.2 percent increase.

Trade, transportation and utilities declined by 2,600, with retail trade suffering a 2,300 hit, due in part to recent layoffs and closures in the sector.

Some economists say much of North Carolina's economic recovery has come from piggybacking on the US recovery, or that the biggest factor in the labor force increase has been people moving into the state - particularly Charlotte and the Triangle - in hopes of finding work.

"Wisconsin workers are benefitting from a strong labor market, demonstrated by our record low unemployment rate for the month of January, and a new all-time high for number of individuals employed in the state of Wisconsin", said state Department of Workforce Development secretary Ray Allen. Those numbers are based on the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics' monthly household survey.
