DENVER (AP) – Colorado’s unemployment rate edged up slightly to 8.3 percent in July.
The figures released Friday show the unemployment rate increased from June’s 8.2 percent and May’s 8.1 percent.
The largest over the month private sector job gains were in leisure and hospitality, manufacturing, professional and business and other services. The agency says there were no significant declines.
