U.S. states added jobs in July

Florida's unemployment rate was 4.1 percent in July unchanged from June state figures released Friday said

The unemployment rate in the state remained at 4.1 percent because job growth kept up with an increase in the state's labor force, pointing to an influx of working families, combined with the entry into the labor force of last spring's graduates.

There were 17,939 people actively looking for work in the three-county area during July compared with 17,675 the previous month, according to data released Friday by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. Here's state jobs czar Cissy Proctor. There was a more dramatic shift in the workforce year over year, with 18,336 more people last month.

The county added 58,000 jobs since July 2016, up 4.5 percent.

Orange County's jobless rate for July was 3.8 percent, down from 3.9 percent in June and down from 4.6 percent a year ago. Tennessee's rate of 3.4 percent is also a record low for that state.

Unless employment grows at an enormous rate, it is unlikely Florida will hit 1.7 million jobs by the end of this year.

That was below the national rate of 4.3 percent.

"Florida's unemployment rate has been consistently low". "This shows that the Sunshine State's economy is stronger than ever and Floridians are able to find a good job, start a business or grow their career in this great state". Florida's job growth has paralleled the Obama years-and now the Trump months-of some 84 consecutive months of growth. But the jobless rate is still higher than in most Florida counties largely because of weakness in global markets.

Hendry County, inland of Fort Myers, had the state's highest unemployment rate at 10.9 percent, followed by Hardee County, east of Manatee County, at 7.5 percent and Glades County, west of Lake Okeechobee, at 6.5 percent.
