The latest numbers tell us that unemployment rate has risen nationally to 9.9%.  But, anaylysts say, that is a good thing.  See report.  Since, the rise means more people have returned to looking for jobs due to the rise in new jobs.  

Texas’ unemployment rate has rose slightly from 8.2% to 8.3.  See report.  That rise probably means again that with the growth in new jobs, more people have returned to the job search.  The state added 32,500 jobs in April.   San Antonio’s rate of unemployment remained steady at 7.3%.
