Illinois Unemployment Rate Drops Slightly

Illinois jobless rate of 10-point-4 percent is still slightly higher than last June's rate. But it marks the second straight month-to-month decline.

The best news is in the manufacturing sector.. which added 16-hundred jobs in June. It's fourth consecutive monthly gain in manufacturing.. and that hasn't happened since 1995. Both education and health service industries added jobs for a sixth consecutive month.
