Unemployment rate raises up slightly
Nevada’s unemployment rate ticked up 0.1 of a percentage point in July to 4.8 percent, after hovering at 4.7 percent for three months, but remains well below a year ago, when it was 5.6 percent.
Seasonally-adjusted employment rose 5,300 in July to a new record high of over 1.34 million jobs,according to Nevada’s Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.
The goal is to help unemployed Nevadans “the opportunity to get back on track,” says Gov. Steve Sisolak.
