Unemployment rose in Wisconsin cities in June

Posted:

MADISON (AP) -- Unemployment increased across Wisconsin's largest cities in June.

New figures from the state Department of Workforce Development show unemployment increased in all 31 cities with a population of 25,000 or more.

Beloit had the highest unemployment at 14.2 percent, up from 13.1 percent in May. Caledonia had the lowest at 4.7 percent, up from 4.3 percent the previous month.

The agency attributed the increase to students getting out of school and looking for summer jobs.
