Posted on Friday, August 15, 2014 10:47am

The latest unemployment figures show that the jobless rate remained flat from month to month statewide, but increased on the Central Coast.

California’s unemployment rate was 7.4% in June, and stayed the same for July.

It was a much different picture locally.  Santa Barbara County climbed from 5.4% in June, to 6% in July.  San Luis Obispo County’s jobless rate is also up, from 5.3% in June, to 6% in July.
