State unemployment rate improves, but loses jobs

Additional Navigation 

Although Maryland's unemployment rate improved slightly in May, the state lost 1,600 jobs, about a 0.1 percent decrease.

Many of the May job losses, 1,300 jobs out of 1,600, came in the private sector, in industries like education, manufacturing, financial and leisure and hospitality.

The Maryland Chamber of Commerce works to expand and improve private sector jobs, strengthening the state's economy.

Unemployment dropped to 4.2 percent in May, down from 4.3 percent in April.

Overall, Maryland has added 43,100 jobs since May 2016.
