The monthly unemployment rate in Massachusetts has dropped below 3% for the first time in more than 18 years.

The state office of Labor and Workforce Development reported Friday that the jobless rate fell one-tenth of a percentage point in April to stand at 2.9%. The U.S. rate stood at 3.6% last month.

State Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Rosalin Acosta said the last time the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was lower than 3% was in December 2000.

Preliminary estimates from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics' show Massachusetts added 4,100 jobs in April.

The bureau estimates the state has added more than 37,000 jobs over the past 12 months.

America's strong job market just got a little better.

The U.S. economy added 222,000 jobs in June, much more than economists were expecting, the Labor Department said Friday.

It's welcome news after the prior two jobs reports had hinted at a possible slowdown in job growth.

The unemployment rate rose slightly to 4.4%, hovering just above its lowest level since 2001.


U.S. added 235,000 jobs in February; unemployment rate dropped to 4.7 percent.

The unemployment rate ticked down to 4.7 percent, compared with 4.8 percent in January, and wages rose by 6 cents to $26.09 in February, after a 5-cent increase the month before.

“It’s definitely a solid report,” said Tara Sinclair, an economist at George Washington University. “This is the kind of number that the Federal Reserve was looking to receive before their meetings next week.”
