Jobs Up - And So Is Unemployment


The number of jobs is up in Illinois, but so is the statewide unemployment rate.

 

The February jobless rate jumped to 9.5%... up from 9-percent in January, and 8.9% in February of 2012. The State Department of Employment Security blames the spike on an increase in people actively looking for work as the number of payroll jobs rises.

 

The department says the state added more than 12,000 jobs in February, despite the uptick in the jobless rate.
