Michigan's Unemployment Rate Matches U.S. Rate
Friday, May 22, 2015
For the 20th consecutive month, Michigan's unemployment rate has fallen. On May 20, 2015, the April unemployment rate in Michigan was equal to the U.S. rate at 5.4 percent. It has been 15 years since the unemployment rate was at this level.
The rate fell in part to more people working in April coupled with a decline in total labor force.
