The state announced the job figures Wednesday after the partial federal government shutdown caused a one-month interruption in the report.

The state Department of Technology, Management & Budget said the 9 percent unemployment for August through October is little changed from the October 2012 rate of 9.1 percent.

Michigan's jobless rate remains higher than the country's October rate of 7.3 percent.

The state agency said Michigan seasonally adjusted civilian workforce fell by 11,000 in the latest month to 4.725 million. It said the number of people working also fell by 11,000 to 4.301 million.

The state said total employment in Michigan is up by 77,000 since October 2012.

So since cutting business tax the unemployment rate has dropped .2% and since RTW went into effect it's gone up .1%

I thought these were both suppose to be job creating machines. Snyder lies again.
