Unemployment Up a Full Point in Springfield

Unemployment in Springfield has jumped a full percentage point since December.


The local jobless rate hit 8.6% in February… compared to 7.6% just two months earlier.


The severe winter weather may have been a factor.


February’s rate was still better than it was a year earlier… when unemployment locally sat at 8.9%.


And it remains the second-lowest jobless rate among major Illinois cities.
