Unemployment across West Michigan remains low with skilled labor in high demand. Today in Muskegon County, nearly 60 employers are participating in the 8th Annual Muskegon Veterans Job Fair.
When the Muskegon Veterans Jobs Fair began in 2012 the unemployment rate there was hovering around 10 percent.
“We had people lined out into the parking lot.”
