The latest unemployment numbers reveal mixed news on the job front. While numbers are down for the state, the Central Valley is still struggling to gain ground. California's unemployment rate fell slightly in November down to 12.3% from 12.5% the month before. That means, more than 2-million Californians were out of work last month. Over the last year, some 617,000 jobs were lost in the Golden State.
