Busy, busy

The Oklahoma Employment Security Commission reports that 41,400 jobs have been added in the year since March 2005.

This includes an increase of 3600 jobs in manufacturing, despite the idling of General Motors' Oklahoma City Assembly plant; most of the gains, however, came from services and government.

The state unemployment rate is 4.2 percent; Oklahoma City reports 4.1 percent, Tulsa 4.0, and Lawton 4.6.
