LANSING – The State of Michigan saw a slight increase in their unemployment rate from April to May.
According to data released by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget, the State's unemployment rate went up from 4.9 percent in April to an even 5 percent in May. Employment levels increased minimally by 6,000, and the number of unemployed edged up by 3,000.
Wayne Rourke, Associate Director of The Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, says Michigan’s labor market remained stable during May. The unemployment rate and payroll job counts both showed little change over the month.
The May unemployment rate of 5 percent was still better than Michigan's unemployment in May 2020 when it was at 20.8 percent.
