SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — 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.
