Fewer workers in most of
America's larger cities were unemployed last month compared with a year
earlier, according to a report
issued Wednesday by the U.S. Department of Labor.
All of the Iowa
cities surveyed - Ames, Cedar Rapids, Des Moines-West Des Moines, Dubuque, Iowa
City, Sioux City and Waterloo-Cedar Falls - showed drops in unemployment rates.
Des Moines showed the greatest percentage drop of the Iowa cities, as the
unemployment rate dropped from 6 percent in December 2011 to 5.3 percent.
