Minnesota June jobless data expected Thursday

Posted at 11:50 AM on July 18, 2011 by Paul Tosto (0 Comments)

Much of state government remains closed as lawmakers continue to work out the details of a budget agreement.

Regardless, on Thursday we will get a look at Minnesota's state jobless numbers for June.

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development says the data will be released Thursday as planned. Staff still working in the department during the shutdown are getting help from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics office in Chicago to process the data.

May data showed Minnesota's unemployment rate tick up to 6.6 percent.
