Unemployment up slightly last month

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Unemployment in Iowa was up slightly last month but is still well below the national rate.

Unemployment rose to 6.7 percent last month, up a tenth of a percent from October.

The national rate was 10 percent.

Workforce Development officials say despite the uptick in unemployment, Iowa's labor market continues to show signs of stabilizing.

They also say it will take some time before the state can achieve a sustainable recovery.
