California’s unemployment rate held steady at the record low of 3.9% in November, the state said Friday.
The state added 28,400 nonfarm jobs during the month as a record job expansion continued, the Employment Development Department said.
The expansion has extended for 117 months.
The unemployment rate record of 3.9% was set in October.
The number of unemployed Californians is the lowest since 1989 despite large gains in statewide population since then, the EDD said.
The U.S. unemployment rate declined from a near record high level (9.5%) in the second quarter of 2010 to a near-record low (3.5%) in the second quarter of 2019. https://t.co/OnBSYVCOhk pic.twitter.com/2HVxvlsUYH
