"L.A. County's jobless rate for November is up from 8.3 percent the previous month - and 5.3 percent in November 2007. Statewide, the rate was 8.4 percent, up from 8.2 percent in October. The national rate is 6.7 percent. The state and local numbers are not great, of course, but they’re not a surprise."
