California Unemployment Rate Rises

California´s unemployment rate jumped slightly in April but the number of people with jobs also
increased.

State officials say the unemployment rate climbed from 4.7 percent in March to 4.8 percent last month. That´s according to the state´s
Employment Development Department. The rate was five percent in April of last year.

Tuolumne County enjoyed its lowest unemployment rate in quite
a while. Their 5.7 percent rate was the lowest in this region. A lot of that has to do with the near 700 jobs opening at the soon to be opened Black Oak Casino
in Mi Wuk.
