The state’s unemployment rate remains well below the national rate of 6.1 percent.

While the state’s unemployment rate was unchanged last month, the state’s employment security office reports the number of out-of-work Granite Staters dropped by 340.

The office also reports the state’s total labor force dropped by about 1,500 people from May to June.
