Unemployment rates rise slightly in Bay Area
March 23, 2013, 05:00 AM

Unemployment rates in parts of the Bay Area saw increases in January while the statewide rate went unchanged for the month, according to employment data released Friday.

The California unemployment rate remained unchanged from December at 9.8 percent. A year ago at this time, the jobless rate was at 11 percent, according to the California Employment Development Department.

In the Bay Area, the highest jobless rate was in Solano County at 10 percent in January.

Other counties saw unemployment rates rise, including San Francisco where December's 6.5 percent rate bumped up to 6.8 percent in January.

The lowest unemployment rates in the Bay Area and state remain in Marin County at 5.8 percent. However, that rate increased slightly from 5.5 percent in December.

Nationwide, the unemployment rate in January was 7.9 percent.

What do you think of the new statewide plastic bag ban?

It's great, we need to get rid of them
Doesn't matter around here, they are already banned
Don't like it
Hope it starts a nationwide trend
Don't like it, but whatever
