Springfield's Jobless Rate Falls Dramatically In April

Springfield's unemployment rate plunged from March to April, resulting in the lowest jobless rate locally in four years. 


New state figures show Springfield's unemployment rate fell to 6.4 percent in April... a sharp drop from the 7.8 percent rate in March.  The April rate was also lower than the same time a year earlier, even though there were more than a thousand fewer total payroll jobs in the city this year. 


State officials say the mixed numbers are the result of fewer people looking for work and an ongoing sluggishness in the national economic recovery.
