MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin’s unemployment rate remains at 3.9% in June for the third month in a row. The state Department of Workforce Development reported the latest totals on Thursday.

The nationwide unemployment rate in June was 5.9%.

A year ago, in June 2020, the unemployment rate was 8.6% down from 10.4% in May as the spread of the coronavirus started to slow in the summer months.

Wisconsin added 8,400 private sector jobs in June, bringing its total to 120,800 more than a year ago.
