California’s Unemployment Rate Dips To 5.7%.

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — California’s jobless rate dropped slightly in November to 5.7 percent, down just a tenth of a point from the previous month, the state Employment Development Department reported Friday. The slow but positive economic job growth seen in recent months is more mixed on the local than national level with 11 states showing unemployment is actually increasing, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) jobs report Friday.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana’s unemployment rate ticked up in November, with the number of jobless people rising even as people exited the labor force. A separate survey showed payrolls flat in November, but more than 11,000 lower than in November 2014, a warning that Louisiana’s economy may be shrinking.

Industries that added jobs in California last month included construction, manufacturing, transportation and utilities, educational and health services, and leisure and hospitality services. It has decreased in a total of 45 states in the past year. “North Dakota had the lowest jobless rate in November, 2.7 percent, followed by Nebraska, 2.9 percent,” the report noted. “New Mexico had the highest rate, 6.8 percent.” Recent monthly reports have shown relatively positive, but slow employment growth. Fields that posted jobs losses in November included government, information and financial services, professional and business services, and mining and logging.
