Friday, October 18, 2019 -Wisconsin’s unemployment rate ticked up for the fourth straight month and is up nearly half a point since May. The state Department of Workforce Development reported Thursday that unemployment in September was 3.2%. That is up from 3.1% the month before the 2.8% in April and May. That tied a record low for the state. The September rate is also two-tenths of a point ahead of where it was a year ago. But it remains below the national unemployment rate of 3.5%.
