Jobless rates drop slightly across the region
Brainerd’s jobless rate dropped slightly in March, as did all the rates across the seven-county area.
Warm weather may have helped by putting the area ahead of schedule from area resorts to lawn maintenance.
Brainerd posted an unemployment rate of 14.2 percent in March, down from 14.6 percent in February. A year ago in March, the jobless rate was 16.7 percent.
