CT adds 300 jobs in April; flips March job loss after revision

The state Department of Labor (DOL) last month said the state shed 1,300 jobs in March. On Thursday it reversed course and said the state actually added 300 jobs in March. The state gained another 300 net jobs in April. Connecticut now has almost 1.7 million seasonally adjusted jobs and an estimated 72,500 unemployed residents, down about 1,600 from March. Construction and mining again led job declines, shedding 2,300 jobs, or a 3.7 percent fall, for a total of 60,500 jobs.
