GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The Green Bay Metropolitan unemployment rate improved in March by half a percent.
That’s according to a household survey from the Department of Workforce Development that found the jobless rate was 7%.
The decline was due to fewer people in the labor force and more people claiming to be employed.
There was total net loss of 300 positions according to a very small survey of employers.
The jobs data is preliminary and not seasonally adjusted.
The Green Bay metropolitan statistical area includes, Brown, Kewaunee, and Oconto Counties.
