Wisconsin unemployment rate goes up
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s unemployment rate ticked up for the fourth straight month and is up nearly half a point since May.
You might remember the unemployment numbers in April and May were at 2.8%, which tied a record low in the state.
It was up to 3.1% in August.
And on Thursday, the state Department of Workforce Development reported that unemployment rate in September creeped up to 3.2%.
The September rate is also two-tenths of a point ahead of where it was a year ago.
But it remains below the national unemployment rate of three-point-five percent.
