Michigan unemployment creeps up again

14.1%.

“Michigan’s jobless rate hit 14.1 percent in May, a near-26 year high, according to data released today by the Michigan Department of Energy, Labor & Economic Growth .

The U.S. unemployment rate rose by half a percentage point in May, to 9.4 percent.”

BTW, both UofM and MSU are going to raise fall tuition >5%. A college scholarship program for the state may be gutted. Also, this is the first unpaid furlough day for state employees.
