Illinois Unemployment Drops Slightly In April


Illinois’s jobless rate dropped slightly in April, compared to a month earlier. 

 

The jobless rate for April was 9.3%, down from 9.5 in March.  But the rate was higher than it was in April of 2012, even though the state reports 40,000 more payroll jobs now than at the same time last year. 

 

State officials say the up-and-down employment numbers in Illinois reflect an ongoing uncertainty about the national economic recovery.
