Good Jobless Report For The Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on May 24, 2013

April was a good month for area unemployment rates.

Jobless rates went down in La Salle, Bureau and Putnam Counties.  In La Salle County, the April unemployment was 9.7 percent, down from 11.9 percent in March.  Bureau County’s April jobless rate is 8.4 percent, down from 10.3 percent in March.  Putnam County’s unemployment rate went down a full percentage point from 11.9 to 10.9 percent in April.

Only Putnam County has a higher unemployment rate now than they did a year ago.
