PA seasonable adjusted unemployment rate dips in November

The downward trend continues for Pennsylvania's jobless rate.

The state's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate decreased by two-tenths of a percent in November to 7.3 percent.

It's the third consecutive monthly decline and the eighth decline in the past year.

But the drop is also due in part to the fact that some people have stopped looking for work.

Pennsylvania's labor force is at its lowest level since February 2012.
