Springfield Unemployment Up


Springfield’s unemployment rate is up… and the total number of jobs in the area is down… compared to last year, according to the latest state figures. The numbers from the Department of Employment Security show the city’s jobless rate stood at 7.8% last month… two-tenths higher than in March of 2012.

 

Meanwhile, the total number of non-farm jobs declined slightly from last year, with the biggest decrease coming in Business and Professional Services.  Layoffs in Decatur leave it tied for the highest unemployment rate among major Illinois cities.
