Iowa unemployment rate rises

Des Moines, Iowa – Iowa Workforce Development is reporting something it hasn’t had to report in a long time — the unemployment rated went up in July

IWD Deputy director Ryan West says it was a small increase.



West says one side of the numbers slightly outweighed the other in figuring the rate for July. 


The number of unemployed Iowans increased by 1,400 42,800 — while the number of working Iowans increased by 4,000.
