Illinois Unemployment Rate Shows a Slight Dip

Updated : June 20th, 2019

The unemployment rate of Illinois declined slightly to 11.2 percent in April. The Government contributed to the job growth by adding jobs for the temporary Census 2010 positions.

“However, as jobs are created and people re-enter the workforce encouraged about their ability to find a job, the unemployment rate might fluctuate for several months before stabilizing,” Director Maureen O’Donnell of Illinois Department of Employment Security said in a news release about Illinois unemployment situation

About 19,100 jobs were added to the state in April. However the matter of concern is that the unemployment rate of the state is well above that of the nation which is 9.9 percent. In this year, Illinois lost 90,300 jobs.

The government added 4,100 josb where as professional and business services added 3,900 jobs. Trade and transportation utilities put in 3,000 jobs while manufacturing sector contributed 2,600 jobs in April.

Two main sectors saw job losses in April. The financial activities sector shed 1000 jobs while the information sector lost 800 jobs.

  1. received letter in mail from trenton advising i am eligible for EUC. Been trying to certify at the time allotted for my social security numbers, but keep getting notification to call the re-employment office.Be darned if I know why,, This goes back to Mar, 2020 ..Calling the re-employment office is an insult to human intelligence,,The voicemail ALWAYS says to call back next day due to high volume? There seems to be no break to this ridiculous circle. You would think the system could at least indicate a reason why we need to call this phantom re-employment center so we could work to provide what is needed..68 years of living and I cannot recall something more agonizing–like a child ignoring you in the 4th grade.. Every day every hour its the same thing now for several months. Does anyone really care about doing something about this unfair nonsense? I guess we are all to blame. Hopefully we can survivive it..
