Unemployment rate steadily declining in county

February 6, 2012

PLYMOUTH — “Slow and steady wins the race” may be the phrase that describes how Marshall County is recovering from recession.
According to the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Marshall County’s unemployment rate declined in 2011 to 9.4 percent from 10.7 percent in 2010. This compares to an unemployment rate of 10.7 percent in Starke County and 9.6 percent in St. Joseph County. Although the improvement is small, it’s a start — and nothing to be sneezed at, according to Marshall County Economic Development Center (MCEDC) director Jennifer Laurent.
