Michigan Unemployment Sits at 10.3%

Michigan is making a slow and steady recovery in the fight against unemployment.

The Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget says the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for May was 10.3%.

That was a little over a percentage point above the national average of 9.1%.

But a sign of recovery is in the comparison to 2010.

In May, the state jobless rate was two and half percentage points below what it had been a year earlier.

These latest numbers reflect a drop of almost four percentage points since the highest jobless rate in Michigan in September 2009.
