Analysts say Michigan’s job market improved significantly in April, marking several months of improvement–

The state’s seasonally adjusted jobless rate for April was 3.8-percent, which was down from 4.1 percent the previous month– 

That’s according to data released Thursday by the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget. 

Wayne Rourke of the Bureau of Labor Market Information said there was a “large drop” in the number of unemployed people in the state last month. 

 Payroll jobs rose for the sixth consecutive month. 

Rourke said the job market continues to move in a positive direction. 

The national unemployment rate fell one-tenth of a percent in April (down to 3.4-percent.) 

Hillsdale County posted a 4.9-percent jobless rate in March.

Local numbers for April are expected to be released later this month.
