WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in nearly all large U.S. cities in September from August, a sign that recent jobs gains have been widespread.
The Labor Department said Tuesday that rates declined in 355 of the 372 metro areas, the most since April. The report also shows that nearly half of cities now have unemployment rates below 7 percent.
