California Unemployment Rate Unchanged At 10.9 Percent

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s unemployment rate remained unchanged in February at 10.9 percent.

The state Employment Development Department reported Friday that the jobless rate held the same from January, when it dipped below 11 percent for the first time in three years.

Officials said the state added 4,000 nonfarm jobs since the January survey, pointing to a gradual improvement in the state’s economy. That builds off a slight gain of 1,500 jobs in January based on revised figures.

The state has added 333,100 jobs since the economic recovery officially began in September 2009.

The number of unemployed people in California remains above 2 million but it was down by 6,000 over the month.
