SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah's job growth continues to be strong, but weaknesses are appearing.

The Utah year-over-year job growth for non-farm wage and salaried jobs in November was 4 percent. That continues a downward trend the state has experienced since August.

However, Mark Knold, chief economist for the Utah Department of Workforce Services, says the slowdown has been expected for a while and is no cause for alarm.

The state added 48,900 jobs in the past year, and Utah's 4 percent figure compares with a national growth rate of 1 percent.
