Unemployment Up As Indiana Adds Jobs

first_imgThe Hoosier State gained 10,000 private sector jobs in June, with every major industry sector experiencing growth.Indiana’s private sector gains signified the largest June increase on record. Since July, 2009, the low point of employment in the state, Indiana’s private sector has expanded by 235,300 jobs.Manufacturing alone has accounted for 77,800 jobs, or one-third of the gains.Despite Indiana’s significant private sector gains, the unemployment rate in the Hoosier State inched up 0.2 percent to 5.9 percent, mainly due to 4,000 individuals returning to the labor force to look for work. Indiana’s labor force participation rate remains at 63.3 percent, exceeding the national rate for the third month in a row.“Indiana added more private sector jobs last month than any other June on record, which is quite significant,” said Scott B. Sanders, Commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development. “The Hoosier labor force has also grown by more than 43,000 in 2014 alone. There is definitely more work to do, but it remains clear that Hoosiers are going back to work and good jobs are available.”Sanders also noted initial claims and continued claims for unemployment insurance benefits remain at levels not seen since 2000.last_img read more

Martinez wants to bring back Traore

first_img Press Association “At the moment we are still talking with Monaco,” he told evertonfc.com. “With Lacina, it is a three-way conversation and it will go a bit further down the line before we take a final decision. “But we always wanted Lacina to be with us and to play his football with us, and that hasn’t changed at all.” Martinez is even more keen to secure the services of Lukaku, who may be available on a permanent deal if Chelsea decide to cash in on the Belgium international. “Romelu had an incredible season. He is a young man who matured immensely,” added the Spaniard. “We know the potential of Rom and Chelsea have been very good with the player and we have been really close with our relationship. “We need to find out where we are and there is nothing more to comment. “Every time we spoke about Rom’s situation it was very clear that he wanted to go to the World Cup and then make a decision. Everton manager Roberto Martinez is keen to bring Monaco forward Lacina Traore back on loan after a fruitless initial spell. “Obviously it is not going to take too long from now on.” Martinez’s squad will be strengthened, however, by the return to fitness of a number of squad members who missed most of last season through injury. “Darron Gibson (knee) is in a very strong way and is ready to join the group straight away,” he added. “Arouna Kone (knee) needs a little bit more one-to-one work for a couple of weeks, then he will be able to join the group. “Bryan Oviedo (broken leg) will need a bit more individual work before he gets fully fit and probably the end of September is when we expect him to be ready. “Realistically, from a medical point of view, it was never a possibility (of playing in the World Cup). “What made it a possibility was the way he pushed himself and the way he was working so hard – so at one stage we thought he would make it. “Once everything settled and we were getting closer to the World Cup we realised he was a little bit behind so we slowed down a bit more to make sure we don’t get any problems in the recovery. “We never had a setback or anything other than the need for time to heal such an injury that Bryan had.” The Ivory Coast striker arrived in January carrying an injury and managed just one hour-long goalscoring appearance in the FA Cup against Swansea before a hamstring problem ruled him out until the final game of the season where he came on for the last minute against Hull. But with Martinez’s striking options for the new season not yet finalised as he awaits an update on the availability of Romelu Lukaku, who scored 16 times on loan from Chelsea, he is exploring the possibility of a return for Traore. last_img read more

Manchester is Red!

first_img(BBC) – Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, said it is a “privilege” to manage his players as they completed the Premier League double over derby rivals, Manchester City, for the first time in a decade.This thunderous encounter was a personal nightmare for Manchester City’s normally reliable Brazilian goalkeeper, Ederson, who gifted Solskjaer’s side both goals in sharply contrasting fashion.He allowed Anthony Martial’s routine shot to squirm under his body from a quick Bruno Fernandes free-kick on the half-hour and then, with seconds left, threw a clearance straight to Scott McTominay, who showed great technique to send a long-range finish, struck first time, into the net in front of a delirious Stretford End.It is a win that leaves Liverpool – who now have a 25-point lead at the top of the table – requiring only two more wins to secure their first league title for 30 years and Manchester United only three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, after their first derby league double since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.City hotly contested the free-kick, given by referee Mike Dean for a foul by Ilkay Gundogan on Fernandes, that led to Martial’s goal – although United also felt they were denied a penalty when Fred was booked for diving after tangling with Nicolas Otamendi.Sergio Aguero had a goal ruled out for offside by VAR and even though City enjoyed the greater share of possession, United sealed a crucial win with McTominay’s strike to take their unbeaten run to 10 games in all competitions.“It’s a privilege to be their manager,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport. “They give absolutely everything. They know they are all good players but they want to learn as well.“We feel we are improving as a squad and a team. We feel the fans want us to do well and they see what we are doing, so it is getting better and better.“But we are still fifth. We need points to catch Chelsea and Leicester, so need to keep plugging away.”Solskjaer sensing top-four finishThe jubilant scenes and the sound of his name echoing around Old Trafford at the final whistle will have been music to the ears of Manchester United manager Solskjaer.The Norwegian, still to convince many of his suitability for the giant task of turning Manchester United’s fortunes around, has now enjoyed three wins over Pep Guardiola and Manchester City this season – and this was surely the most satisfying day of the season at ‘The Theatre Of Dreams’.United may still be light years away from the glory days of old but victories such as this sustain hope, and the atmosphere inside Old Trafford as Solskjaer’s side first held on to their advantage and then sealed the win was reminiscent of days gone by.Manchester City may have enjoyed the greater share of possession but United showed great resilience and always carried a threat on the break.Fernandes once again confirmed what a shrewd piece of business his signing was from Sporting Lisbon – although why wait so late in the window to sign him? – and why he is already a hero to United’s fans.The Portuguese has that touch of class and creativity while United had another outstanding performer in defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who won his battle with Raheem Sterling as he hounded the England star for 90 minutes and beyond.Manchester United, who have looked off the top four for so much of the time this season, are now right in the fight and credit must be given to the manager who has helped fashion this impressive run.“We feel we are improving all the time. We know we lack one, two, three players to be considered a title contender and some experience,” said Solskjaer. “We are just going to start talking about going up the table, getting more points.“Chelsea and Leicester are too far ahead for my liking.”last_img read more
