LANSING, MI (WHTC) - Unemployment fell along the Lakeshore and in all of Michigan’s 17 regional labor markets in seasonally unadjusted numbers released yesterday by state officials. Joblessness stood at seven percent for Ottawa County and 7.6 percent in Allegan County, down eight tenths and nine tenths of a percentage point from September figures, respectively. A reduced work force level was seen as the biggest reason for the decline. The Holland area did have one of the strongest percentage job growth gains over the past year in Michigan.
