State Jobless Rate Unchanged

Posted by wlpo on November 16, 2012

Illinois’ jobless rate hasn’t changed from last month.

The state’s October unemployment rate is at 8.8 percent.  That’s down from 10 percent last October.

According to state numbers, Illinois added 48 hundred jobs in October.  Manufacturing and education are among the biggest job creators while government continues to see the biggest job losses.

County by county unemployment rates are released later in the month.
