N. California jobless figures worsen
by LEE JUILLERAT. Herald and News 3/30/12
High unemployment trends continue in far Northern California with February rates at 16.7 percent in Modoc County and 18.8 percent in Siskiyou County, based on data from the California Employment Department.

In Siskiyou County, small gains in construction, professional and business services, mining and logging, and state, local and federal government were offset by an increase in the labor force and lost farm jobs. The February statistics indicate 3,690 people in the county’s 19,680-person labor force were unemployed. The 18.8 percent rate is slightly higher than the 18.6 percent in January, but below the 19.6 percent rate in February 2011.

In Modoc County, the 16.7 percent rate was above January’s 16 percent figure in January and below the 18.1 percent rate in February 2011. The county saw job losses in farming, goods producing, and trade, transportation and utilities, although there were small gains in leisure and hospitality and local government.
