BLADE STAFF AND NEWS SERVICES

LANSING — Michigan says the state’s unemployment rate crept up to 10.3 percent in May, pushed higher by the loss of 8,000 government jobs and 3,000 in education and health services.

The seasonally adjusted figures released Wednesday by the Department of Technology, Management, and Budget show an increase of 0.1 percentage point since April. The national rate also rose, to 9.1 percent.
