State Senator Discusses Illinois Unemployment Situation

The Illinois Department of Employment Security is touting the state's jobless rate and job growth claims this month but a central Illinois Senator says you can throw the state's narrative out the window.


Sen. Chapin Rose says the jobless rate is low because the State of Illinois does not count people that have stopped looking for work. He says much like inflation, he believes most people understand the job situation is much worse than is being reflected in government data.



According to the Mahomet Republican, Gov. JB Pritzker projects an 'all is well' message but the reality is, Illinois families are hurting at this time.



Sen. Rose indicates central Illinois is hurting from jobs leaving but big companies like The Citadel, Caterpillar, and Boeing partially relocating their workforces overtime does not right itself.
