New Unemployment Rates Are Out

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2010

For much of the listening area, the unemployment rate isn’t getting better or worse, it’s staying the same.

The jobless figures for October are now out and Bureau and La Salle Counties unemployment rates are the same as they were in September.  Bureau County’s jobless rate is 10.4 percent, La Salle County’s unemployment number is 11.6 percent.  Both counties unemployment rates are about a full percentage point lower than this time last year.

Putnam County’s October unemployment rate is 10.6 percent, down from 10.9 percent in September.  Putnam County’s jobless figure is nearly three percentage points lower than last October.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
