Press release from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development:
June 2010 Indiana Employment Report
(INDIANAPOLIS, July 20, 2010) – Indiana’s employment situation remained basically unchanged in June. The state’s preliminary seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate moved slightly upward (0.1 percent) to 10.1 percent. Indiana job figures were essentially unchanged as well. These changes are not considered statistically significant.
“Indiana’s economy added thousands of jobs in retail, manufacturing and finance, but those gains did not overcome a drop in hiring by temporary staffing companies,” said Mark W. Everson, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “We hope this begins a trend of temporary jobs turning to permanent positions in mainstay Hoosier industries such as transportation and manufacturing.”
Indiana businesses added 3,600 permanent jobs, but the loss of temporary staffing jobs in Professional and Business Services (-4,700) resulted in total private sector employment dropping 1,100. Sectors reporting significant over-the-month employment changes include: Trade, Transportation, & Utilities (4,400), Manufacturing (2,100), Financial Activities (800), Leisure and Hospitality (-2,700) and Construction (-400). The U.S. Census accounts for the change in Government employment (-3,600) and led to a decline of 4,700 in total non-farm employment.
Indiana’s private sector has added 46,600 jobs this year. Indiana’s rate of private sector job growth for the year remains two percent, over three times the national rate of 0.6%. The chart below shows the unemployment rates for the U.S., Indiana and our surrounding states.
