WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) – The Wausau metro area’s jobless rate rose last month, from 7.7 to 8 percent.

The metro area was one of only two statewide that saw local unemployment rates increase in October. All the rest decreased.

Wausau’s jobless rate was double what it was in October 2008 and higher than the statewide average of 7.8 percent.

The state workforce development department reported that the metro area lost 200 manufacturing jobs and 200 jobs in the leisure and hospitality industry.

Statewide, Janesville had the highest local unemployment rate at just under 11 percent. Madison had the lowest rate at 5.5 percent.
