Six thousand more Michiganders were working last month, compared to November.
That dropped Michigan’s unemployment rate slightly by a tenth of a point.
Data released yesterday by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget put the seasonally-adjusted rate at 3.9 percent.
That remains above the national average of 3.5 percent.
Michigan Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives Director Jason Palmer described employment for the year 2019 as “steady.”
Preliminary figures show that the unemployment rate for 2019 will come in a tenth of a point lower than in 2018.
