California's Unemployment, Job Seekers Decline
California businesses added 12,000 nonfarm jobs in August, dropping the state's unemployment rate to 10.6 percent from 10.7 percent, The L.A. Times reported. Education and health services added the most jobs (8,900) while government jobs had the biggest loss (7,400).
Despite the small dent in the unemployment number, about 77,100 people stopped looking for work last month.
California now has the third-highest unemployment rate behind Nevada (12.1 percent) and Rhode Island (10.7 percent).
