Illinois Jobless Rate Now At Lowest Level Since 2008

Illinois has more jobs… and fewer people out of work. 


The unemployment rate fell last month statewide to 6.8 percent… the fifth straight decline and the best showing since the summer of 2008, before the economic collapse hit. 


Just one year ago, the rate was 9.2 percent.  The year-to-year improvement in the jobless rate was the biggest since 1984.
