North Dakota’s jobless rate improved to two-point-eight percent in may. That compares to three-five in april and two-point-seven-percent one year ago. Over the year the number of employed workers in the labor force grew by around eight-thousand but the size of the labor force also jumped significantly. Labor market analyst Michael ziesch says the start of summer can result in a bit of a roller coaster ride on the job front as many college students enter the work force. North dakota's unemployment rate is the lowest in the nation.
Minnesota’s may rate is five-point-three…the national rate is over seven.
