OLYMPIA, Wash. (Metro) -- Washington's job market is looking up. The Employment Security Department says the state added eleven-thousand-700 jobs in May. Sectors that added the most jobs last month were professional and business services, and transportation, warehousing and utilities. Nevertheless, unemployment rose slightly, from April's revised rate of 8.2 percent to 8.3 percent in May. Employment Security economist Anneliese Vance-Sherman says the higher unemployement numbers probably mean more people are looking for work, which is actually a good sign.
