News from the Illinois Valley

Illinois Valley jobless rates hold steady

Posted by wlpo on October 28, 2016

The good news is that jobless rates didn’t get any worse in the Illinois Valley last month. The bad news is they really didn’t improve either.

La Salle County’s September unemployment rate was 6.2 percent, the same as August and just slightly lower than last September. Bureau County’s jobless rate is unchanged from last September at 5.9 percent and just a little higher than August. In Putnam County, the September unemployment rate is 5.2 percent, slightly lower than in August.

Jobless rates include those who are out of work and actively looking for a job.
