Jobless rates down again in area counties
MADISON - Unemployment rates in Green and Lafayette counties followed their typical slide in April, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' estimates released May 21 by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development. If the annual pattern continues, both counties can expect a slight bump up in May, before rates settle again into a decline for the rest of the year. April 2014 rates decreased in 70 of Wisconsin's 72 counties compared to rates in March 2014 and in April 2013.
