MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVA) – The State of Alabama set a new record low with November’s unemployment numbers.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced Friday the state’s preliminary seasonally adjusted November unemployment rate set a new record low of 3.5 percent. This is down from October’s previous record-setting rate of 3.6 percent and well below November 2016’s rate of 6.2 percent.

“It was just last month when we reached the extraordinary milestone of breaking all previous unemployment rate records, but now just a month later the trend continues and we have once again broken those records,” said Gov. Ivey.
