Two-thirds of states adding jobs, government says

In a year-over-year comparison (June 2016 to June 2017), nonfarm payroll employment in California increased by 261,400 jobs (a 1.6 percent increase). The unemployment rate is derived from a federal survey of 5,500 California households.

According to the EDD, the highest unemployment rate in the region was 7.8 percent in Bostonia, the unincorporated area on the northeast side of El Cajon. The nation's labor force participation rate was 62.8 percent in June, also back to levels last seen in the late 1970s. Almost 54,000 Iowans were without a job last month. Indiana's total labor force is more than 3.3 million and the state has a 64.4 percent labor force participation rate. Employment estimates were revised downward in four sectors, most notably education and health services, which was revised downward by 1,400 jobs. However, overall industry jobs have grown by about 1,100 between June 2016 and June 2017, according to Weaver.

The bureau of labor statistics estimates the number of unemployed people in the IL workforce increased by 1.2 percent last month.
