If You Lose Your Job...

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.
