The state’s unemployment rate was 10.1% last month, according the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

That was down from 10.2% in September.

While the state’s jobless rate has been steady since the start of the year, there has been a significant increase in the number of people who have sought help and been placed into government assistance programs, which has led to a larger number of jobless people.

The Michigan Department of Workforce Services says that more than 2.6 million people have been placed in the state Workforce Independence Grant program.

That’s up from 1.9 million last month.

More than one million people were placed in unemployment benefits last month too.

The number of applications received for unemployment assistance rose to 4.5 million in September from 4.3 million in August, the department said.

The unemployment rate in Michigan has been hovering around 10% since September, according in the latest figures from the Michigan Department for Economic Opportunity.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that the unemployment rate nationally is 5.4%, but it is higher in some states than others.
