Illinois Jobless Rate Hits Five-Year Low

Illinois’s unemployment rate has hit a five-year low… even though it remains well above the national average. 


The State Department of Employment Security says the March jobless rate fell to 8.4 percent, the best it’s been since January of 2009.  The drop came even as more Illinoisans returned to an active job search… and despite the effects of ongoing harsh winter weather in March. 


The biggest areas of job growth are in professional services, health and construction… while government jobs are down statewide.
