KIMT NEWS 3 — It’s a good time to work in the gopher state as the number of jobs continues to rise.

More than 4,000 jobs were added by Minnesota employers during the month of July.

That’s according to figures released by the State Department of Employment and Economic Development.

The unemployment rate remained steady at five point two percent.

State employment experts say, as fall approaches, they don’t expect a decline in jobs, rather a shift in where they’re going.

“We do see increases actually for the month of September and October and then as the holiday season increases, retail will start to pick up. Manpower Branch Manager Laura Lunde said. “So, we’re going to see some shifts in what industries are growing in the next coming months.”

The state has gained more than 70,000 jobs over the past year.
