The news isn't good for workers in the state of Kentucky. The jobless rate has jumped to 7.1%, as of September.
That number is up from 6.8% in August. That's according to the Office of Employment and Training (OET), which is an agency of the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet.
September's unemployment numbers are also higher than a year ago. Last year at this time, the jobless rate was 5.4%.
OET says job losses came in nearly every sector of the state's economy.
Non-farm jobs decreased by more than 13,000 jobs in September.
While some job agencies, such as Manpower, say they've seen fewer jobs being offered to people, Governor Beshear is encouraging employers to take action and hire those that need jobs, so help our economy in Kentucky.
The economy also has some retailers cutting back on the number of seasonal help they hire for the holidays.
Nationally, many department stores are reporting they will not be able to hire as many workers around the holidays as they did last year.
