SD Unemployment Rate Unchanged in March

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota's unemployment rate remained unchanged last month.

The South Dakota Labor Department reports that the state's jobless rate was 4.3 percent in March, the same rate recorded in February. The state's unemployment rate has remained about half the national rate in recent months.

State Labor and Regulation Secretary Pam Roberts says South Dakota gained about 1,300 non-farm workers in the past year. She says the biggest employment gains were in trade, transportation, utilities, professional and business services, and education and health services.
