Pennsylvania’s economy continues to demonstrate resilience amid broader national trends, with the state’s unemployment rate holding steady at a record low of 3.4% in November 2023, according to a recent report from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I). This figure, the lowest since records began in January 1976, underscores a robust job market in the Keystone State. In contrast, the national unemployment rate stood at 3.7% after a two-tenths of a percentage point decrease from October. The state’s unemployment rate was also significantly lower compared to the same period last year when it was pegged at 4.4%.
