GOP Governor Pete Ricketts Has Nebraska’s Economy Firing On All Cylinders

Governor Rickett’s leadership continues to get real results for Nebraska.

The RGA writes:

Thanks to GOP Governor Pete Ricketts’ pro-growth, pro-jobs policies, Nebraska’s economy is firing on all cylinders. Over the last year, Nebraska’s unemployment fell from 3.3 percent in December of 2016 to just 2.7 percent last month as 10,000 new jobs were added over the course of the year. With the state finally crossing the threshold for 1 million jobs last year, Governor Rickett’s leadership continues to get real results for Nebraska workers as the state soars to new economic heights.

The Lincoln Journal Star has more:

Nebraska’s unemployment rate was 2.7 percent in December, the same as it was in November but down from 3.3 percent in December 2016.

Employment was up by more than 4,000 from a year ago, while unemployment fell by more than 5,700 people.

The number of jobs in the state in December was 1,037,248, which was an increase of more than 10,000 from a year ago.

The 1 million job mark in December helped the state hit a significant milestone.

‘This is the first time that Nebraska had more than one million jobs in each month of the year,’ Commissioner of Labor John Albin said in a news release. He called 2017 a ‘strong year’ for non-farm employment.
