"First of all, with the low unemployment rate, and this is coupled with baby boomer retirement, it's a good sign that individuals are still coming into our labor force at a very good pace", he said.

Nevada's unemployment rate fell to a seasonally-adjusted 4.8 percent in March, down from 4.9 percent in February.

Tennessee's unemployment rate is continuing to gradually decline. It includes jobs in agriculture and those classified as self-employed.

More than 34,000 MA residents entered the labor force in March, a sign that they are optimistic about their chances of finding work. That's according to the state Department of Labor and Training. "Strong job growth has pushed the unemployment rate down further as more workers find jobs".

Nonfarm data is provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Current Employment Statistics program.

Local unemployment numbers for March won't be out until next week, but Springfield had an unemployment rate of 7.3 percent in February, up a tenth of one percent from January.

In a guideline post on its website that sets the policy tone on employment issues, the State Council said provincial governments in those regions should take measures such as increasing the stipend for firms under job-shedding pressures. Every metro area in Georgia saw increases in their job totals year over year.

"Additionally, the state is adding jobs at a faster rate than the nation as a whole". Over the year, Financial Activities gained 6,400 (+2.9%) jobs. Manufacturing (-5,800 jobs) was the only sector to report job losses. There were 15,700 fewer unemployed persons over the year compared to March 2016. Over the year, Other Services are up 1,200 (+0.9%) jobs.

The leisure and hospitality sector decreased by 500 jobs in March 2017.

According to the document, support should be extended to micro and emerging businesses, which are the engines of job creation. The professional and business services sector accounted for the most of the dip. Other services lost 1,300 jobs.

The government will continue to encourage entrepreneurship and help small enterprises thrive as key ways to create more jobs, by building more start-up industrial parks and incubation bases, along with more tax policy bonus for start-ups.
