California’s unemployment rate has fallen in recent years, along with the rest of the nation. However, every day we hear about someone losing their job in California because a business closes down or a manufacturer leaves our state.
The State of California offers a number of resources for those who find themselves out of work.
Here is a list of some of those resources.
