Alaska unemployment rate edges up

Email

Alaska unemployment rates remained persistently high in June, with new job seekers entering the market more rapidly than summer hiring could absorb them, according to data from the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development released Friday.

While the Alaska seasonally adjusted unemployment rate moved from 7.3 percent in May to 7.5 in June, it remained below last June’s 7.9 percent.
