Slight rise in unemployment during March


GREENVILLE — More than 200 jobs were created in Hunt County between February and March.

But the number of jobs being added failed to keep up with the demand for work, leading to a slight increase in the local unemployment rate.

The unemployment rate remains at its lowest point for the month of March in three years, but is expected to rise, with the closures of two industrial plants.
