Private Sector Employment Again Reaches Preliminary Record Peak

INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 18, 2019) – Indiana’s unemployment rate stands at 3.6 percent for December and remains lower than the national rate of 3.9 percent. With the exception of one month when it was equal (October 2014), Indiana’s unemployment rate now has been below the U.S. rate for more than five years. The monthly unemployment rate is a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicator that reflects the number of unemployed people seeking employment within the prior four weeks as a percentage of the labor force.

Indiana’s labor force had a net increase of 1,543 over the previous month. This was a result of an increase of 83 unemployed residents and an increase of 1,460 employed residents. Indiana’s total labor force, which includes both Hoosiers employed and those seeking employment, stands at 3.40 million, and the state’s 65.1 percent labor force participation rate remains above the national rate of 63.1 percent.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Per the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), sub-state level data are not seasonally adjusted due to sample size. For example, over the course of a year, the size of the labor force, employment and unemployment levels, and other measures of labor market undergo fluctuations due to seasonal events including changes in weather, harvests, major holidays, and school schedules. Therefore, for more accurate comparisons, data should be compared to the same month from prior years, not the previous month, as to better account for non-economic factors.

Shopping Cart


Photos of our belts are available under the API Leather Crafting menu item. We can make whatever you need subject to availability of materials. Belts are currently part of our charity to the Adult Life Training job skills training organization. To help improve employment send me an e-mail at and specify 1. belt width (3/4″, 1″, 1.25″, 1.5″, 2″), 2. color (scarlet, forest green, canyon tan, coal black, midnight blue, clear coat only — no color, or untreated natural leather), 3. the distance in inches around your waist (not what a previous belt said — please measure your waist), 4. whether or not you want embossing down the edges of the belt, and 5. whether or not you want lettering stamped onto the belt.

Belts are $32 each plus $5.80 USPS priority shipping unless you pick them up at our office. This amounts to $37.80 for one belt, $69.80 for two, because I can get two belts into the USPS small fixed rate box. Payment is due in advance by making the appropriate donation on the Adult Life Training web site and noting at the time of the donation on PayPal that this is for a belt. BE SURE YOUR MAILING NAME AND ADDRESS in in the donation comment box or we will have no way to know who is paying!

We started adding the shopping cart for API LeatherCrafting. We are attempting to use open source tools, however there are challenges when they do not perform as expected or lack certain required functionality.
