LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Nevada added over 8,400 jobs last month.

But the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation says the number of jobs remain below typical levels.

The state's unemployment rate stands at 8%.

That's still a massive improvement from the near 30% unemployment that was reported last year because of the pandemic.
