Governor Pleased With New State Jobs Report

 Rhode Island's April unemployment is lower than the national rate which is three-point-six percent.

The state's jobless number last month dropped two-tenths of a percent from March to three-point-two percent.

“Today’s jobs report shows that our plans and policies are working for Rhode Islanders and local businesses,” said Governor McKee. “That’s why we’ve been able to add thousands of jobs and get our unemployment rate to the lowest level it has been in decades. .”

The Department of Labor and Training says it's Rhode Island's lowest jobless rate since March of 1989.
