LANSING, MI (WNEM) -

July's unemployment rate in Michigan dropped to 5.3 percent. But the governor isn't satisfied with the numbers. 

Gov. Rick Snyder issued a statement following the announcement of the lowest unemployment rate in the state since August 2001. 

“The hard work we’ve done together in Michigan to boost our economy and create more and better jobs continues to pay off,” Snyder said. “While it’s important to recognize how far we’ve come, we must never lose sight of where we want to be. We can be proud that more than 420,000 private sector jobs and opportunities for Michiganders have been created since the end of 2010, but we must not be satisfied. We can, and will, continue to grow and thrive.”

The 5.3 unemployment rate for Michigan aligns with the national average.
