black unemployment Michigan

A study from the Economic Policy Institute shows that the African-American unemployment rate in Michigan in 2010 was 47 percent higher than the 15.9 percent national average of unemployment for African-Americans.

Mlive.com reports:

African Americans in Michigan have experienced unemployment rates of 20 percent or higher in virtually every quarter since early 2009, including a 2010 annual unemployment rate of 23.4 percent, rivaling the top unemployment rates seen during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

By contrast, Michigan’s white unemployment rate declined from a peak of 12.7 percent in the last quarter of 2009 to 9.5 percent in the last quarter of 2010.

Black unemployment has been so bad in Michigan that the lowest rate of 12.2 percent in 2008 was close to the highest rate of 12.7 percent in 2009 for white people.
