Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - Front Page - By Jake Ab­bott jab­bott@ap­pealdemo­crat.com

The Yuba-sut­ter area’s un­em­ploy­ment rate im­proved last month, de­creas­ing from 13.5 per­cent in July to 10.7 per­cent in Au­gust.

The lo­cal rate was bet­ter than the state’s av­er­age (11.6 per­cent) but lagged be­hind the na­tional av­er­age (8.5 per­cent). De­spite the lo­cal im­prove­ment, the rate was nearly dou­ble what it was for the same month in 2019, when there were 9,800 more avail­able jobs across all in­dus­tries.

Sut­ter County had an un­em­ploy­ment rate of 10.7 per­cent in Au­gust, rank­ing it 43rd out of 58 coun­ties.

Yuba County had an un­em­ploy­ment rate of 10.8 per­cent, rank­ing it 45th in the state.

The area had 900 more avail­able jobs in Au­gust when com­pared to

the month prior, all of which were in the non­farm­ing in­dus­try. Those in­dus­tries in­cluded gov­ern­ment (1,000

jobs), ed­u­ca­tional and health ser­vices (200), and min­ing, log­ging and con­struc­tion (100).

In­dus­tries that saw job losses in­cluded trade, trans­porta­tion and

util­i­ties (300 jobs), and leisure and hos­pi­tal­ity (100).

Co­lusa County had an un­em­ploy­ment rate of 11 per­cent, rank­ing it 49th in the state for Au­gust.
