Illinois experienced lowest monthly unemployment level last month

Things are looking up for the state!  Illinois saw record low number in August for the unemployment rate.  According to the Illinois Department of Employment Security, August saw a statewide unemployment rate of 4%.  While this was a new low for Illinois, the state is still 0.3% higher than then national unemployment rate.  At least the number dropped!  Hopefully we see that 4% drop a few more percentages…
