SACRAMENTO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger today released the following statement after the California Employment Development Department released its most recent unemployment data:

“While it is encouraging to see California’s unemployment rate level off this month, we’re still experiencing job loss and have a long way to go on the road to economic recovery. As state and federal stimulus plans further take effect in California, I will continue to ensure we are doing everything possible to create and protect jobs – while also ensuring California’s unemployed workers have access to assistance and resources during these difficult times.

My Administration has no greater priority than continuing our aggressive actions to restore employment and normal growth in California.”
