Washington, D.C. – Upon learning of today’s news that Nevada is one of seven states that had an increase in employment over the previous month and was among the top three states in terms of jobs added, Nevada Senator Harry Reid made the following statement.
“While we are not yet out of the woods, the news that Nevada has added almost 3,000 jobs as compared to the previous month is encouraging. Although this is a sign that our efforts to pass the Recovery Act, create jobs and help Nevada’s economy recover are beginning to pay off, too many Nevadans are still struggling to make ends meet. I will continue working with the Administration, business leaders, and state officials to improve our economy and get people back to work.”
According to information from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “The largest over-the-month increases in employment occurred in Indiana (+4,400), New Mexico (+3,700), Nevada (+2,700), and Utah (+2,500). New Mexico (+0.5 percent) experienced the largest over-the-month percentage increase in employment, followed by Indiana, Nevada, and Utah (+0.2 percent each).” The BLS press release can be found here: http://www.bls.gov/news.release/laus.nr0.htm.
