Yuma now tops unemployment list

(El Centro no longer the leader)….a distinction they happily relinquish.

Unemployment numbers for metropolitan areas were released Wednesday. El Centro unemployment was listed at 24%. It was no longer the highest in the nation. The highest jobless rate is not far away, however. Unemployment in Yuma, Arizona was reported at 30.3%. Yuma now heads the list for national unemployment. El Centro is now second on the list.
