Study: State’s jobless rate holds steady 

California’s jobless rate has not improved, but it’s not getting any worse, according to a recent study released by Beacon Economics. The report shows the state’s unemployment rate at 12.6 percent in April and 9.7 percent in the San Francisco region.

Discouraged workers who had stopped looking for work are now starting to participate in the job hunt again, according to the study.

Since December 2009, 213,000 people have re-entered the California labor force. Overall, 164,800 more California residents have found work since January.
