La Salle County unemployment remains in double-digits

Posted by wlpo on July 28, 2011

Receiving on unemployment?  The June unemployment rate for La Salle County was down from the same time last year but was still slightly more than 10%.  June unemployment rates were slightly higher than May’s rates in La Salle, Bureau and Putnam Counties.

In Bureau County unemployment was 9.4%.  Putnam County unemployment was 9.3%.

The Ottawa-Streator area unemployment rate was 10.1%, two points lower than the same time last year.  Still, the Illinois Department of Employment Security says the area lost manufacturing and professional-business services jobs.
