Pennsylvania’s labor market kicked off 2024 on a high note, with the state’s unemployment rate holding steady at 3.4% in January while total nonfarm jobs reached a record high for the sixth consecutive month, according to preliminary data from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I).

In a report that also included revisions to job data for the previous five years, L&I revealed that the state’s unemployment rate remained unchanged from December, remaining below the national average of 3.7%.
