SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s unemployment rate fell slightly in June to 10.7 percent, as the state added 38,300 jobs.
The Employment Development Department released the latest jobs figure on Friday. It marked a slight drop from May, when unemployment was at 10.8 percent.
State officials say trade, transportation and utilities posted the largest job increases since May.
