Statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel Regarding May 2012 Employment Rates in Chicago

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

I am pleased that last month, Chicago recorded its lowest unemployment rate since January 2009, as well as the highest number of employed residents since December 2009. I am deeply committed to economic development in all its forms and I will not rest until every Chicagoan can find a job, support their family, and enjoy the quality of life they deserve. These numbers are a direct sign that our efforts are working and a step toward our goal of making Chicago the most competitive, most business-friendly, most economically viable city in the world. I look forward to our chance to continue making progress on this crucial issue.
