The Bureau of Labor Statistics' (BLS) preliminary job estimates indicate MA added 4,800 jobs in October. Breaking down the numbers, the private sector added 4,300 jobs while government jobs declined by 2,900.

Maine's unemployment rate fell slightly in October, to 3.5 percent. The September estimate was revised to a gain of 10,300 jobs.

The number of workers unemployed in OH in October was 296,000, down 9,000 from 305,000 in September, according to the state data.

Ohio's unemployment rate is a full percentage point higher than the USA unemployment rate, which was 4.1% in October, down from 4.2% in September and 4.8% in October 2016.

From October 2016 to October 2017, BLS estimates MA has added 69,000 jobs. But she adds not all communities and regions of the state are benefiting equally from this growth. Kansas Labor Secretary Lana Gordon says in a release from the department, that almost 3,400 additional Kansans became employed in October.

Unemployment remains historically low in ME, with the rate at or below 4 percent for 25 consecutive months, officials say.

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. That's the lowest Lincoln rate since 2000, according to the Labor Department.
