Michigan unemployment continues to decline
Lansing–Michigan’s unemployment rate has continued its downward trend, coming in at 8.3 percent in April.
That’s compared to 8.5 percent in March and 10.5 percent in April 2011, according to data released on Wednesday by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget.
“This is more good news for Michigan and for our state’s economy,” said state Sen. Brandenburg R-Harrison Township. “We are continuing to see steady declines in the jobless rate, and I look forward to continued, consistent progress for Michigan.”
