Iowa unemployment rate holds steady in February
The state unemployment rate here in Iowa did not change in February.
The rate mirrored January at three-point-six percent despite an overall drop in non-farm jobs by 47-hundred. Iowa Workforce Development says a majority of the job losses came in construction --likely due to the extremely cold temperatures in February. I-W-D's analysis says the unemployment rate is expected to decrease in the coming months as temperatures continue to warm up and more people are given the COVID vaccine.
