Mo. unemployment rate falls, but state loses jobs

Missouri lost 3,300 jobs in November but the state's jobless rate still dropped.

The Department of Economic Development reported Friday evening that the state's unemployment rate dropped three-tenths of a point to 8.2 percent last month.

The decline in nonfarm employments comes after the state reported that it added about 1,100 jobs in October. However, the state reported a net loss of 4,000 nonfarm jobs in September.
