Lake County Unemployment for May Rises to 6.9%

New South Dakota Department of Labor stats show Lake County's unemployment rising again, to 6.9% in May. Still not as high as our January peak of 7.1%, but nothing to brag about, considering we're still above the statewide average of 4.9%.

Neighboring Brookings County also saw a rise, from 2.8% in April to 3.4% in May. Brookings's peak rate this year was March's 3.5%. Among all of our neighboring counties, only Miner is worse off at 7.3%.
