Michigan registers largest jobless rate decline

Lansing— Michigan and Alabama registered the largest jobless rate decreases from March 2011 to March 2012 by both registering drops of 2 percentage points, according to a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report released today.

“Slowly but surely we are chipping away at the unemployment rate,” said Brandenburg, R-Harrison Township. “At one point, Michigan had the highest unemployment rate in the country; we are now tied for 14th. I am looking forward to continued progress for Michigan, and I am confident that our unemployment rate will continue to decline due to the actions taken by the Legislature in the past 16 months.”
