JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Alaska’s unemployment rate stood at 6.4 percent in June.

That compares to the revised May rate of 6.3 percent and a seasonally adjusted rate of 6.6 percent in June 2013.

The nation unemployment rate was 6.1 percent last month.

The state labor department says Alaska’s unemployment rate returned to levels seen before the recession relatively quickly while the U.S. rate has recovered more slowly and continues to decline.
