Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates dropped in all of Michigan’s 17 major labor market areas in August, according to state officials.
The Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget says total employment and labor force levels declined seasonally in the majority of regions over the month.
Officials say that August jobless rates declined in all regions due to seasonal workforce reductions as fewer individuals actively sought employment.
The rate for August in Michigan was 8.7-percent while the U.P. rate was 8.6-percent and Marquette County’s rate was 7.8-percent.
