Governor Mike Parson made the announcement during his Thursday press briefing in the state capital.

He says over May and June Missouri recovered about one-third of the jobs lost in March and April.

The Missouri Department of Economic Development shows over 71-thousand jobs added to the state’s economy in June.

Missouri’s unemployment rate decreased by just over 2-percent last month, going from 10.1-percent in May to 7.9 percent in June.

The national unemployment rate last month was just over 11-percent.

The unemployment rate in Missouri has been below or equal  to the national rate for 64 consecutive months, or just over 5 years.
