Unemployment benefits will run out for millions of Americans this spring if Congress doesn't extend the unemployment insurance program (an unemployment line in California in 2007).

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan says seasonally unadjusted unemployment rates have increased in all 17 of the state's labor markets.

Figures released Thursday by the Department of Technology, Management & Budget show Michigan's overall unadjusted unemployment rate rose by 1 percentage point, from May's 8.4 percent to 9.4 percent in June.

The department says rates ranged from a low of 6.8 percent in the Ann Arbor region to a high of 11 percent in the northeastern Lower Peninsula. It says the rate was 10.3 percent in the Detroit area.

The department says regional jobless rate increases from May to June ranged from 0.1 to 1.3 percentage points with a median hike of 0.6 of a percentage point. According to state officials, rates historically advance in June by around half of a percentage point.
