Anyone care to explain this?

It's way down at the bottom of the article. With no explanation. One short little line.

Michigan's latest monthly jobless rate is its highest since reaching 15.3 percent in May 1983.

About 19,000 jobs were lost last month in manufacturing, a fallout of problems that include the bankruptcies of General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC.

About 10,000 jobs were lost in professional and business services. Another 5,000 jobs were lost in construction.

Michigan gained about 5,000 government jobs in June.
