Stanislaus unemployment ticks up a bit

Stanislaus County saw a modest increase in the unemployment rate for September, but remained the lowest it has been since 2008. The county ticked up to 13.9 percent unemployment in October, up a half a percentage point from a revised 13.4 percent for September. The increase follows historical trends as agriculture and manufacturing close out their busy seasons.
