Yesterday, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment released numbers from July. We added 5,500 non-farm jobs last month, continuing 33 straight months of job gains and that puts the unemployment rate in Colorado at 5.3 percent.

The state jobs report released yesterday says Colorado’s jobless rate hasn’t been that low since October 2008. The biggest job gains were in education and health services, construction and professional and business services. The leisure and hospitality areas lost the most jobs.

Manpower will hold a job fair this coming Saturday for 100 open positions at Vestas in Northern Colorado. These additions are part of 800 new hires Vestas plans to make by the end of the year.  Openings include permanent and temporary positions at Vestas plants in Windsor and Brighton for manufacturing, production, assembly and shipping.

Pay starts at $16 an hour and can include benefits.

The job fair is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 1500 B East Crown Prince Blvd. in Brighton. Bring two forms of I.D.
