The unemployment rate in the United States in April fell to a historically low level, settling in at 3.9 percent, the lowest rate since 2000 and a rate not seen prior to that since 1970.

April marked the 91st consecutive month of job gains, the longest streak of job increases on record.

Low unemployment is certainly good for the nation, but it can have deleterious effects on industries such as seafood that require unskilled, seasonal workers to keep operations humming.
