While state and national unemployment rates dropped in June, it's a different picture locally. The jobless rate in Santa Barbara County jumped from 8.3 to 8.8 percent, but it still has the second lowest rate in California. Still, some of the cities within the county are relatively high.
Of the cities in Santa Barbara County, unemployment in Lompoc is the highest at 15.4 percent up from 14.6 percent in May. In Santa Maria, the jobless rate rose to 13.6 percent from 12.9 percent.
The Workforce Resource Center offers training programs at Allan Hancock to help people find work.
