Signs of a strong economic outlook are spreading around the state. Ten of 14 metro areas in Illinois gained jobs and one of the state’s blue collar hubs, Rockford, saw unemployment drop three percent. The State’s Department of Employment Security’s Bob Gough says it’s an indication of a growing economy.



Springfield, Carbondale, Danville, and East St. Louis all lost jobs last month.
