Unemployment in November 2013 higher than in 2012

NT Staff

Unemployment rates in the Illinois Valley remain higher than the state average, and the state rate remains higher than the national rate. Only six times since January 2000 has the state rate been lower than the national rate, according to Illinois Department of Employment Security.

The Ottawa-Streator labor market area had a 10.3 percent unemployment rate in November, 0.8 percent higher than in November 2012. The area saw increases in manufacturing and warehousing jobs and losses in retail and wholesale trade jobs.

La Salle County’s rate last month was 10.7 percent, 0.9 percent worse than the November rate the previous year. Putnam County’s rate this November was 0.7 percent higher than in 2012 at 9.8 percent. Bureau County is at 9 percent and Marshall at 7.9 percent.
