MADISON – The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) today released the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) preliminary employment estimates for the month of June 2021. The data shows that Wisconsin added 10,700 total non-farm and 8,400 private-sector jobs in the month of June. Wisconsin's unemployment rate in June was 3.9 percent, matching the May unemployment rate. Additionally, Wisconsin's labor force grew by 10,000 people in June, a statistically significant rate of growth according to BLS.
"Wisconsin's June job numbers are another welcome sign of Wisconsin's economic recovery from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as vaccination rates rise," Secretary-designee Amy Pechacek said. "More and more people are returning to the labor force as demand for services increases and employers begin to ramp up hiring to meet that demand as demonstrated by the strong increase of 8,800 private service providing jobs in the month of June."View Wisconsin Labor Force Summary
