Unemployment Rate

Unemployment up in 28 States

More looking for work

|

Unemployment rates rose in 28 U.S. states last month, partly because more Americans started looking for work and not all of them found jobs.

The Labor Department says unemployment rates fell in 11 states and were unchanged in another 11.

Nationally, the unemployment rate remained 7.6 percent in June, even though employers added 195,000 jobs.
