By The Staff

Unemployment ticked up slightly in Los Alamos County in the month of May, that according to New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions.
Los Alamos had an additional 26 persons reporting as unemployed in May as opposed to April. In all, a total of 308 people were unemployed.
Despite the uptick, the county still had the lowest unemployment rate among the state’s counties. Los Alamos reported a 3.8 percent unemployment rate for 8,167 job seekers, a number that was down from April’s adjusted number of 8,209.
Los Alamos’ rate of unemployment is similar to that of a year ago, when a 3.9 percent unemployment was reported.
The current rate is still well below the seasonally-adjusted rate for the state of 6.2 percent. That number held steady between April and May.
Across the state, most numbers stayed steady. Albuquerque’s numbers remain strong, as do many of the metro areas in New Mexico.
Workforce Solutions reported about 2,400 nonfarm jobs had been added last month, most of those in the service industry. Construction across New Mexico also added roughly 1,100 jobs.
