California's labor market posted its 11th straight month of job growth in June, with employers adding 38,300 nonfarm jobs last month.
The state posted the largest month-over-month increase in the country, causing the unemployment rate to tick down to 10.7%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The dip in the jobless rate, however, could be attributed in part to fewer job seekers actively looking for employment. The state's labor force shrunk by 36,800 in June.
Still, California's gains are a marked difference from the national employment report. U.S. employers added 80,000 jobs in June, the third straight month of weak job growth.
