That's when it released the jobs data from February and reported the legal sector lost 200 jobs that month - this on top of 1,200 jobs that were lost in the industry in January. "We look forward to seeing the many more opportunities that will be created throughout the year as more job creators choose to grow in Florida". The state's unemployment rate remained below the national rate of 4.1 percent. That's up from a revised 4.2 percent in December. Both have stayed in place since then. Manufacturing was up, as well, by 3.1 percent. Niobrara County had the lowest unemployment rate with 2.3 percent, and Teton County was next with 2.5 percent.

Pulaski County's was 3.7 percent, reflecting an estimated 227 people out of work and a labor force of 6,087. Alaska had the highest jobless rate, at 7.3 percent.

Employment in educational and health services increased by 3,000.

Florida's housing market also remains strong as median home prices rose $20,000 across the state in the a year ago. There were no big winners other than construction, with a 1 percent gain (28,600) jobs. Many employers have said they're unable to add jobs because there is a lack of available talent with the right qualifications.

Vermont Labor Commissioner Lyndsay Kurrle says the limiting factor of economic growth in the state is the labor force. Government employment fell by 0.5 percent, according to the Department of Workforce Solutions.
