  • Maine unemployment dips to 3.5% in October

And it's three-tenths of a percent better than that rate of 4.1 percent, which was the lowest in nearly 17 years.

The unemployment rate remains the same at 3.9 percent, according to the Department of Workforce.

The labor force decreased by 13,400 from 3,669,500 in September, as 5,600 fewer residents were employed and 7,700 fewer residents were unemployed over the month.

The largest increase in the last 12 months was 24,500 added jobs in professional and business services.

The U.S. preliminary unemployment rate of 4.1 percent for October was little changed from 4.2 percent for September and down from 4.8 percent one year ago.
