Springfield's Unemployment Down to 7 Percent, Lowest in 5 Years


Springfield’s unemployment rate is at its lowest level in five years.

 

The jobless rate dipped in August to seven-percent… down almost a full percentage point from a year earlier.

 

State officials say Springfield has added 1800 jobs over the past year, contributing to one of the lowest metro unemployment rates in the state.

 

But just a few miles away, Decatur continues to suffer through the state’s worst jobless rate, climbing last month to 12-percent.
