DENVER (AP) — Colorado unemployment dropped to 6.0 percent in April, the lowest level the state has seen since the beginning of the Great Recession.
The state labor department said Friday that nearly 14,000 jobs were added between March and April, the 30th straight month of job growth. The leisure and hospitality industry, education and health services added the most jobs.
The last time the state’s unemployment rate was 6.0 percent or below was in November 2008, when it hit 5.7 percent.
