Unemployment Up In Illinois, Stays Level In Indiana

Illinois' unemployment rate improved slightly in April, dipping to 9.3 percent compared to 9.5 percent in March.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security shows that there were 2,000 fewer jobs in April, despite the improved unemployment rate which could indicate fewer people were looking for work.

The national unemployment rate is 7.5 percent.

Here in Indiana, March unemployment remained steady at 8.7 percent.

The state saw its first decline in jobs since mid-2011, led by losses in the Trade, Transportation and Utilities sector.
