Hong Kong's unemployment rate hits record low

Maine unemployment dips to 3.5% in October

The statewide jobless rate also saw a slight increase in October to 2.7 percent.

Hong Kong's unemployment rate has decreased by 0.1 percentage point to 3 percent - its lowest level since 1998. The October unemployment rate was four-tenths of a percentage point lower than the national rate of 4.1% reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The state's total unemployment rate dropped to 3.7% in October, the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development announced.

The last time Hawaii County's rate was 2.3 percent was in December 2006, before the start of the Great Recession.

State and local unemployment rates are at their lowest levels in almost two decades. The Omaha metro area's rate of 2.4 percent also was the lowest in almost 20 years.

A separate survey of employers showed seasonally adjusted nonfarm payrolls dropped by 4,300 in October, a month after hitting a record high close to 6 million.

The jobless rate fell to 4.8% last month from 5.1% in September. The bulk of the increase in leisure and hospitality was attributed to employment increases in food services and drinking places. Government employment declined by 500 jobs, the DLIR said.
