Slight decrease in Merced County jobless rate

Merced County’s unemployment rate declined by 0.1 of a percentage point in June from the previous month but is down more than 2 percentage points from this time last year. The county has seen consistently lower rates compared with 2013, but the announcement last month that hundreds of people in Atwater will lose their AT&T call centers jobs hangs like a dark cloud over the good news.
