Fla and Local Jobless Rates Drop Again

Florida's unemployment rate keeps dropping.
 
The state's jobless for November was 6.4 percent, down from 6.7 percent in October.  

This is the lowest that Florida's unemployment rate has been since July 2008.

Palm Beach County's unemployment rate mimics the state's numbers.  6.4 percent in November, down .3 percent from the previous month, and down from 8.1 percent a year ago.

The new figures show that the state added 6,100 jobs last month. Nearly 600,000 people in the state are out of work.
