Big Island Unemployment Graphic

The state Department of Labor and Industry said Friday that Pennsylvania's unemployment rate was 4.9 percent last month, down one-tenth of a percentage point.

Annually, unemployment insurance benefit payments were down almost 16 percent - from $1.3 million a year ago to $1.1 million for August 2017.

California's jobless rate rose to 5.1 percent in August, the first time in six months that statewide unemployment surpassed the 5 percent threshold. Growth occurred in seven major industry sectors, with four adding 3,300 or more jobs, each.

The 2.5 percent rate tied with April for the lowest unemployment rate of the year and the lowest in the area since November. The state's labor force participation rate stands at 64.4 percent, which remains higher than the national rate of 62.9 percent, according to the DWD.
