After dropping for the past couple months, unemployment in Wadena County rose from 9.8 percent in May to 10.3 percent in June.

"That struck me as a little unusual because it is summer," said Paul Sailer, the county's human services director. "I would expect it to stay the same or go down."


Seasonal jobs such as construction work usually result in lower unemployment in the summer.
