Unemployment Rate Up in Illinois

Illinois' unemployment rate increased again in July with the loss of thousands of government and hospitality jobs.


The Illinois Department of Employment Security said Thursday that the July unemployment rate hit 8.9 percent.


That's up from 8.7 percent in June and was the second straight increase after nine months of steady decreases.


The biggest category of job losses was government work, which decreased by nearly 8,000 last month.
