3-6-15 wi unemployment down

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin’s unemployment rate has dropped to 5 percent, its lowest point since before the recession.  The state Department of Workforce Development reported Thursday that the unemployment rate dropped from 5.2 percent in December to 5 percent in January.  Private-sector job creation was basically flat over the period, with just 300 new jobs created.  The numbers fluctuate greatly month-to-month because they are based on a survey of just 3.5 percent of Wisconsin employers. More accurate quarterly jobs numbers, that aren’t as current, were scheduled to be released March 19.
