Michigan’s unemployment rate dropped to 3.7% in July.  That number ties with Kansas, Maine and Minnesota us as the 15th lowest among the states.

The United States national unemployment rate in July was 4.3%.

For a point of reference Michigan had the highest unemployment rate in the nation from April 2006 to February 2010, a span of 47 months.

This low unemployment number should drive an increase in salary and hourly pay for many of us.

Great Job Governor Snyder and the Republican controlled House and Senate!
