New report shows more jobs being created in southwest Michigan, but not enough to keep up with employment demand

KALAMAZOO, MI (WTVB) - The latest Quarterly Outlook from the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research confirms the southwest Michigan economy is continuing to produce jobs, but not enough to meet all of the demand from pool of workers left adrift by the recession. Labor economist George Erickcheck says the region has gotten off to a good start in 2013, although he adds that it’s rather strange that we are seeing the unemployment rate basically remain unchanged.

The May jobless numbers for counties around the state will be released a week from tomorrow. Erickcheck expects the slow steady growth to continue.
