Michigan’s unemployment rate in April slid slightly to 14 percent, from 14.1 percent in March, according to data released Wednesday, May 19, by the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth.
“Employment rose in April as persons entered the Michigan job market, while the number of unemployed individuals in Michigan was essentially flat over the month,” said Rick Waclawek, director of DELEG’s Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, in a news release. “The state’s workforce has been increasing in 2010, following sharp reductions in 2009.”
However, the state’s jobless rate in April was still up 0.8 percentage points over the year-ago rate of 13.2 percent.
