Unemployment rate declines

The local unemployment rate fell in most metro areas last month. Eleven out of 12 areas saw a drop in the jobless rate. Decatur is the only area where there was an increase in unemployment in August. Kankakee, Rockford, and Chicago saw the largest drops over the last year. Illinois Department of Employment Security Spokesman Greg Rivara says the data shows that the economy is moving in a positive direction.
