LANSING – There was no change in Michigan's unemployment rate from May to June.
Data released by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget shows the State's unemployment rate remained at 5 percent in June. The statewide employment total rose by 9,000 over the month, with the number of unemployment individuals was unchanged. Michigan's total workforce edged up just two-tenths of a percent in June.
Wayne Rourke, Associate Director of the Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, says despite the rebounds over the past year, Michigan's employment, unemployment and jobless rate indicators have not yet recovered back to pre-pandemic levels.
The June unemployment rate of 5 percent was still better than the National unemployment rate for the month, which was at 5.9 percent.
