Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced Friday that Alabama’s preliminary seasonally adjusted November unemployment rate set a new record low of 3.5 percent, down from October’s previous record-setting rate of 3.6 percent, and well below November 2016’s rate of 6.2 percent.
November’s rate represents 75,807 unemployed persons, also a new record low, compared to 77,231 in October and 136,135 in November 2016. More people were counted as employed in November, with 2,087,667 people working, up from 2,079,720 in October, and 40,152 more than in November 2016, when 2,047,515 were counted as employed.
