GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay metropolitan area’s unemployment worsened in February after skyrocketing in January.
The jobless rate increased from 7.3% to 7.6% in February.
That’s according to new numbers from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development released Wednesday. The unemployment rate is based on a household survey.
There was a net loss of 100 jobs in February. That data is derived from a very small survey of employers.
The data is preliminary and local jobs numbers are not seasonally adjusted. The data is typically revised months later.
