Nebraska Unemployment Ticks Higher

The unemployment rate in Nebraska rose two-tenths of one percent last month to settle at 4-point-2 percent. That uptick doesn’t bother State Labor Commissioner Cathy Lang. . .

Lang says seasonal factors contributed to some of the increase. . .

Nebraska has seen job growth in the manufacturing…and leisure and hospitality sectors.
The national unemployment rate is 7-point-4 percent.
