Local Jobless Claims At 10-Year Low

Year-to-date jobless claims in Springfield are at their lowest level in more than a decade. 


The Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce says the figures for September and October were delayed because of the partial federal government shutdown… but the numbers appear to be worth the wait. 


Around 8500 jobless claims have been processed locally so far this year… compared to around 10,000 at the same point a year ago.  The Chamber says it’s the best showing since 2002.
