Maryland loses 9,000 jobs in July

BALTIMORE - July was rough in Maryland when it comes to unemployment.

The state experienced one of the largest job declines in the nation, as employers in Maryland cut 9,000 jobs last month.

The job losses mean Maryland’s unemployment rate has increased at 6.1 percent, according to the Department of Labor. Only Ohio lost more jobs in July while most of the country gained jobs.         

The final numbers could change because jobs in education aren't measured during the summer.
