The unemployment rate in Wisconsin remained at 3.9% in May for the second straight month. The Department of Workforce Development says employers in the state added 3,600 total non-farm jobs and 3,400 private-sector positions last month. D-W-D Secretary-designee Amy Pechacek said, “the number of people counted as employed grew by 9,300 over the month, a nice gain that demonstrates that the efforts to connect job seekers to jobs in Wisconsin are working.” The national unemployment rate was nearly two points higher than Wisconsin’s at 5.8% in May.
