State Jobless Rate Holds Steady In August


Illinois’s unemployment rate is holding at 9.2 percent. 

 

The August numbers from the state Department of Employment Security show the private sector added 59-hundred jobs in the state last month… but government jobs were down more than 11-hundred.  The net effect was to keep the jobless rate right where it was in July. 

 

IDES director Jay Rowell says the numbers show the uncertainty of the economic recovery and the shaky state of consumer and employer confidence.
