Posted by wlpo on December 22, 2011

If one of your goals of 2012 is to find a new job, the market remains tough but new jobs are being added.  The November unemployment numbers show the Ottawa- Streator area at 10.5%, down half a percent from last November.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security says over the year, jobs were added in education and health services but more were lost in manufacturing and government.

November unemployment for La Salle County was 10.8%.  Bureau County unemployment was 9.6%.  Putnam County unemployment was 10%.
