5 Must See Holiday Light Displays in LA

The unemployment rate has been at or below 4.0 percent for 26 consecutive months. Many employers say it is hard to find people to fill their open jobs, and so are holding tightly onto their existing staffs.

New Mexico's unemployment rate remained unchanged in November at 6.1 percent, notably less than the 6.7 percent logged for the same period past year.

That was the same as in October but down considerably from the 3.3 percent rate in November 2016.

Nebraska's employment numbers hit an all-time high in November, with 984,197 employed, up more than 5,600 from a year ago.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state's November jobless rate was 6.1 percent, the same as October.

Virginia, along with Arkansas, has the fourth lowest seasonally adjusted unemployment rate among the Southeast states.

Since September, the number of people unemployed in the First State has fallen by 12 hundred - but the number jobs statewide has also dropped by 900.

"Maryland's continued job growth, particularly in the private sector, shows that the work Governor Hogan and the entire administration is doing to attract businesses and help them expand is paying off", said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill in a statement.

The construction sector saw the largest loss, dropping 1,900 jobs, followed by leisure and hospitality, which lost 1,400 jobs. That's 1,300 fewer jobs than initially estimated.
