Michigan’s unemployment rate dropped to 4.8% this month. That is just below the national average. Michigan Works Job Center CEO Greg Pitoniak says the 4.8% rate does not reflect the long term unemployed.

But Pitoniak tells WDET’s Amy Miller that now is a good time for anyone who is unemployed or underemployed and wants another job.
