California unemployment rate remained unchanged at 12.6 percent for April.
That's according to the latest figures from the California Employment Development Department. That state department says nonfarm payroll jobs increased by 14,200 last month. That means that California has gained some 56,400 jobs since the beginning of 2010. Still, the department says that the year-over-year change (April 2009 to April 2010) shows a decrease of 355,300 jobs.
About 2.3 million Californians remain unemployed.
