Local unemployement show improvement from March to April

Posted by wlpo on May 28, 2010

Fewer people were filing unemployment claims last year at this time, but there is one positive sign for local unemployment numbers.

April unemployment numbers for La Salle, Bureau, and Putnam Counties were slightly lower than they were in March.

April unemployment in La Salle County was 14.3%.  It was 11.4% in Bureau County and 13.5% in Putnam County.  This April’s figures, however, were slightly higher than those of April 2009.
