Michigan’s unemployment rate rose in August.
Seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates were up last month in each of Michigan's 17 major labor market areas.
Michigan’s unemployment rate fell to 8.3% in April – a drop of two-tenths of a percentage point.
LANSING, MI (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder is getting ready to sign bills aimed at saving Michigan employers money on unemployment insurance and worker's compensation benefits.
He plans to sign the bills at a 3:05 p.m. Monday news conference.
The bills would further limit the ability of a person who was fired for cause or who may have left a job voluntarily from collecting jobless benefits.
They would require some unemployed workers to take jobs after 10 weeks of benefits even if the jobs are outside the unemployed worker's previous experience or pay lower wages.
