Unemployment Climbs In Springfield


Springfield's jobless rate has taken another big jump up. 

 

The city's unemployment in February climbed to 9.2 percent, up from 8.4 percent at the same time a year earlier.  But it remains below the statewide rate of 9.5 percent. 

 

Most other major Illinois cities also saw spikes in unemployment, especially Decatur, where the jobless rate soared in February to 13.7 percent, highest in the state.
