La Salle County unemployment unchanged from last October

Posted by wlpo on November 23, 2011

The local job market doesn’t seem to be getting easier.  The unemployment rate for La Salle County in October was 11.1%, the same as it was in October 2010.

Bureau and Putnam county unemployment was 9.8% for October, slightly lower than it was last October.

The Ottawa-Steator area unemployment was 10.7%, barely lower than the same time last year.  The Illinois Department of Employment Security says the educational-health services and leisure-hospitality fields added jobs.  But still more jobs were lost in manufacturing, government, and business services fields.
