The national unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level in a decade, but there is still a need for more jobs in communities throughout Chicago.

Ald. Joseph Moore, 49th Ward, and the city of Chicago hosted the third annual Job Fair and Employment Resource Workshop in Rogers Park this week. Some 40 companies gave information to job seekers, who attended the fair for free.
