Arkansas unemployment rate rises to 8.1 percent

If Arkansas is inching out of hard times — as revenue figures have indicated — it's not showing in employment figures.

The Arkansas unemployment rate in June was 8.1 percent, up from 7.8 percent the month before. Not good news in this report, though the total workforce is still slightly more than it was the same month a year ago. The unemployment rate is the highest in 24 years.
