Know anyone looking for a job? County unemployment rates continue to be high in the Illinois Valley.

La Salle County’s February jobless rate was 12.4%, down about a half of percent from this time last year but about the same as last month. In Bureau County, the latest jobless rate is 10.9%, about a half percent lower than last year and over a percentage point lower than last month.

Putnam County’s unemployment rate isn’t changing much. February’s jobless figure was 12.5%, down slightly from a year ago but up a few ticks from last month.
