The national unemployment rate for November was 4.1 percent, unchanged from October. Unemployment in St. Lawrence and Oswego counties also rose from last month when they were 5.7 percent and 5.6 percent respectively. Losses were partially offset by a gain in the Construction (4,900) sector. Of those, 3.8 percent were in manufacturing of nondurable goods.

The two other sectors that added jobs in November were Leisure and Hospitality, and Educational and Health Services, which each added about 100 positions. Other industries showed little estimated job change in November. Smaller over-the-year declines were estimated in wood product manufacting, information, and wholesale trade, all down by 30 jobs over the year.

According to the labor department, the jobless rate for both counties increased from the same time a year ago when they were 6 percent. The city's rate represented 460 unemployed workers compared to a 14,560-person labor force. Annual employment growth for Texas increased to 2.7 percent in November, marking 91 consecutive months of annual growth.
