Jobless Rates On The Upswing

Posted by wlpo on September 27, 2013

Know anyone who went from unemployed to being employed recently?  Jobless rates are improving in the Illinois Valley.

La Salle County’s August unemployment rate was around 10.5%, down almost a full percentage point from July.  Bureau County’s newest jobless rate is over 8.5%, down a half of a percent.  Putnam County’s latest unemployment rate is 9%, down almost a full percent from the month before.

All the unemployment rates in the Illinois Valley are lower than they were last year.
