BRANCH COUNTY, MI (WTVB) - Some positive numbers for Branch County in the latest unemployment figures from the state. The report for February had the County’s jobless rate at 8.8%. That’s down from 9.2% in January. 2013 started with a step backward for Branch County’s jobs picture as the unemployment rate jumped more than a full percentage point from the 8.1% number in December. Branch County was one of 28 counties in Michigan that showed an improvement in the jobless numbers for February. State officials said Michigan's local labor markets were very stable in February. Changes to area job totals over the month were mostly seasonal, with the public and private education sectors recalling workers following the holiday break. March numbers for counties in Michigan are expected to be released in three weeks.
