Unemployment numbers increase slightly in June


The state announced Tuesday morning that Indiana’s unemployment rate for June 2010 increased slightly (not statistically significant) by 0.1 percent to 10.1%,  up from the May 2010 rate of 10%.

  • County with highest unemployment: Fayette  at 14.0%
  • County with lowest unemployment: Elkhart at 13.6%

According to  the Indiana Dept. of Workforce Development (DWD), “Indiana’s economy added thousands of jobs in retail, manufacturing and finance, but those gains did not overcome a drop in hiring by temporary staffing companies.”

Indiana’s unemployment rate in June 2009 was 10.8%.
