HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Montana's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate held steady at 5.2 percent in November.

The state Labor Department says that's down half a percentage point from November 2012 and is below the federal rate of 7 percent.

Labor Commissioner Pam Bucy says retailers hired more workers this holiday season than in past years, which suggests they were expecting stronger holiday sales.
