Jobless Numbers May Not Reflect Those Not Looking for Work


Springfield’s unemployment rate is now at a four-year low… but that number may not tell the whole story.

 

Joblessness fell to 6.4 percent in April, a steep drop from March and a decline from April of 2012.

 

But the decrease may partly reflect people who are not being counted… because they are not actively looking for work.

 

The State Department of Employment Security says Springfield had 11-hundred fewer jobs last month than at the same time a year earlier.
