ne-dept-of-laborAuthorities say Nebraska’s preliminary unemployment rate for February was unchanged at 3.8 percent, matching the revised rates for January and December.

The Nebraska Labor Department said in a news release Friday that the rate was two-tenths of a point lower than in February 2012 and less than half the national February rate of 7.7 percent for this year.

The 3.8 percent state rate is the second-lowest figure in the country, trailing only North Dakota.

    Funny how I looked for a job in Nebraska for 6 months and couldn’t get anything. I move to Michigan (8.8%) and get a job with a great salary in 2 weeks.

    Current score: 0
