5/21/2015 - Wisconsin Unemployment Rate Remains Low - Click here to print this information

Wisconsin's unemployment rate is again the lowest since the Great Recession. The statewide seasonally-adjusted jobless rate dropped to four-point-four percent in April -- two-tenths of a point less than in March. The state workforce development agency announced the new figure today. Also, state officials said Wisconsin added 35-thousand-736 private sector jobs throughout all of last year. That's an increase of one-and-a-half percent from the start of 2014 through the end of the year. We'll find out on June 17th how the state's job growth compares to other states, when the U-S Bureau of Labor Statistics puts out its Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages. In its last report, Wisconsin had the nation's 40th slowest job growth.
