Rockford Unemployment on the Road to Recovery

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford is still very much on the road to recovery. In June, our jobless rate fell to 11%, down half a percentage point from this time last year. Now, two other metro areas are worse off than we are; Danville and Decatur and Kankakee just barely has us beat. For years, the Stateline had the worst unemployment in Illinois. Year to year, we added just over a thousand jobs.
