Maine Unemployment Rate 3.3 Percent in November

Meanwhile, statewide unemployment also fell in November, to 4.6 percent from 4.9 percent a month earlier. The 235,000 average for the last two weeks is similar to the four-week average, with the level historically low.

The national unemployment rate was 4.1 percent in November.

"Heading into the holidays, more Tennesseans have jobs this year, compared to last year", Phillips said.

In Iowa, the unemployment rate for November was 2.9 percent, compared to 3.5 percent in the same month a year ago.

US initial claims for unemployment benefits rose to a five-week high last week, but remained low by historical standards, the Labor Department reported on Thursday.

Professional and business services gained the most jobs, while government lost jobs. That's 1,300 fewer jobs than initially estimated. Around the state, the lowest rate was 2.4 percent in Cumberland and Sagadahoc counties and the highest was 4.6 percent in Washington County.

Monthly workforce estimates are cooperatively produced and released by the Maine Department of Labor, Center for Workforce Research and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The Aloha State clocked in at 2 percent.
