The latest employment report holds good news for Hoosier workers.

Indiana led the nation in job creation, adding 25,000 jobs in November alone. That is the largest one-month increase on record. Indiana ranks 10th for the number of jobs created in 2013.

Indiana's job force is heavily based on manufacturing. In fact, Hoosiers have the highest percentage of manufacturing jobs in the entire country. The state ranked 2nd in the nation for job growth in that area.

Indiana also led the nation in creation of construction jobs.

There wasn't a decline in jobs in any sector last month.
