LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder issued the following statement regarding today’s announcement that statewide unemployment dropped to 3.7 percent:

"Since December 2010, Michigan's double-digit unemployment rate has fallen significantly while our economy has continued its tremendous comeback. There is always more we can do because we still have a disconnect, with people needing jobs and job providers needing skilled workers. Our increased emphasis on educating children and adults with the right career skills is vital. We need to close the talent gap and prepare every Michigander for a rewarding career that can lead to a prosperous future."
