UPTICK IN LAYOFFS

Twelve #Illinois employers announced 1,301 layoffs for the month of May. Until May, mass layoffs had been decreasing each month since February. A majority of the job losses came from Cook County, while 513 jobs were in the manufacturing sector. According to Illinois Policy Institute, while the state isn’t losing jobs at the pace it did in 2015, the discouraging job loss data is a reminder that the state desperately needs reforms to help its manufacturing sector.
