Monday, April 21st, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina officials are releasing a report offering more details on employment conditions in March, when nearly 20,000 jobs were added and the jobless rate fell to 6.3 percent.

The state Commerce Department on Monday offers its monthly take on a month then North Carolina logged the country’s second-biggest growth in employment. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday reported that North Carolina trailed only Florida as employers in 34 states increased payrolls last month.

The state’s March jobless rate was below the national average for the second straight month and remained the lowest it’s been in more than five years. The US unemployment rate was 6.7 percent in March.
