Maine unenployment hits record low

Sun Journal =  As Maine’s unemployment rate continues to improve, setting a new record low in March when only 3 percent of Mainers seeking jobs were without one, politicians seek to take credit.

The newly released statistics from the Maine Department of Labor show, too, that March saw the lowest percentage of government employees in the workforce in at least four decades.

Nationally, the unemployment rate was at 4.5 percent in March, U.S. Department of Labor statistics show.
