Unemployment rates down in Sheboygan area last month


SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Local unemployment numbers improved as 2013 came to an end.

The state Department of Workforce Development says the Sheboygan metro area had 100 more people working in December than in November.  This allowed the unemployment rate to drop in the city of Sheboygan half a percent to six percent, and Sheboygan County’s rate dropped from 5.2 to 5-percent.

The same trend occurred throughout Wisconsin, with preliminary job growth of three thousand last month and an unemployment rate down one-tenth to 6.2.
