The labor market continues to weaken, judged by the volume of help-wanted advertisements in newspapers around the country, the Conference Board reported Thursday.

The board said ad volume declined last month in all nine major regions, with the Pacific, East North Central and Middle Atlantic regions posting the steepest drops.

The board's Help-Wanted Advertising Index stood at 108 in November, down from 116 the previous month and a sharp 35 points below the year-ago level.
