Unemployment Up North of Ottagan Street, Down South of It

by

LANSING, MI (WHTC) - Joblessness rose along the Lakeshore and throughout most of Michigan in May. The state’s Department of Management, Technology and Budget disclosed month-over-month unemployment numbers for regional markets yesterday, showing Ottawa County still third lowest in the state at 5.3 percent, up three tenths from April, while Allegan County was seventh, up four places, at 5.8 percent, down three tenths of a percent. A year ago, those numbers were at 6.6 and 6.8 percent, respectively. State officials say an influx of workers seeking seasonal employment was a factor in the joblessness rate jump in many regions.
