Michigan unemployment reaches new low

LANSING, MICH. - Unemployment in Michigan has dropped to 3.7%.

The rate has continued to decrease since Feb. 2017, and it has been on the decline since it peaked at 14.9% in Jan. 2009.


"Since December 2010, Michigan's double-digit unemployment rate has fallen significantly while our economy has continued its tremendous comeback," said Gov. Rick Snyder. "There is always more we can do because we still have a disconnect, with people needing jobs and job providers needing skilled workers."
