Unemployment down in most Wisconsin metro-areas

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  Unemployment went down last month in ten of Wisconsin's 12 metro areas. New figures released yesterday show that none of the metros saw their actual unadjusted jobless rates increase.

Milwaukee held steady from the previous month at 6-percent, and Madison's rate stayed the same at 4-percent -- the state's lowest. Racine had the highest metro jobless rate at 7.5-percent.

Unemployment also dropped in 69 of the state's 72 counties, and remained steady in Dane, Milwaukee, and Ozaukee counties. Menominee had the state's highest county jobless rate at 15.1-percent. Dane and Pierce counties were the lowest at 3.8-percent.
