The state's labor market showed continued resilience in July as California employers added 25,200 nonfarm jobs in July, continuing a 12-month streak of job gains.
With that figure, the state posted the largest month-over-month increase in the country, but the unemployment rate was unchanged at 10.7%, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Employers across five industries added jobs, with professional and business services leading the way and creating 15,200 jobs. The education and health services industry added 10,300 jobs, and leisure and hospitality added 6,400 jobs.
Still, California employers shed jobs in other industries such as trade, transportation and utilities, which lost 8,000 jobs. Manufacturing lost 3,100 jobs and construction, 1,200 jobs.
