Minnesota employers added 36-hundred jobs in April.   State job analyst Steve Hine:

“It’s not been quite enough to really turn around the soft…weak start to the year where we’re only up 700 jobs over the course of the first four months. But none the less this was a small step in the right direction.”

Minnesota’s unemployment rate sits at 3.3 percent. This compares to the national jobless rate of 3.6 percent.
