15 US states with record low unemployment

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), as of November 2019, the US unemployment rate was 3,5%. The last time he was at such a low level was almost half a century ago, in December 1969. It is forecasted that by the end of 2020 the unemployment rate will fall even lower to 3,25% across the country, notes GOBankingRates. The publication has collected information about the states where this indicator is especially low - it is worth paying attention to those who are looking for work.

According to The New York Times, employers added 266 jobs in November. BLS publishes unemployment data every month, which show a steady decline over the past decade.
