Michigan’s Unemployment Rates Rise

Some bad economic news for Michigan, officials say unemployment rates in most of the state's labor markets rose last month.

The jobless rates jumped in 16 of Michigan’s 17 labor market regions in November.

The only area with a lower rate was the Monroe region in the southeast corner of the state.

Jobs were lost in leisure and hospitality services, and in construction.

However, jobs were added in retail trade and in education.

Unemployment rates are seasonally adjusted to remove influences such as production cycles, holidays, and climate conditions.

Michigan's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in November was nearly 7%, the second highest in the nation.
