New York's Jobless Rate Positive Despite Increase

New York State’s job picture is looking brighter according to the labor department. Figures show the region’s jobless rate is up to 9.4 percent over last year from 9.2 percent. The national jobless rate is at an average of 8.7 percent.  The labor department reports that those who have given up on looking for work have also been re-entering the labor force now.  Most of the growth is in trades, transportation, and utilities, followed by education and health services.
