Unemployment up to 5.8% ... or is it?

Arizona’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for June is 5.8 percent, up two-tenths of a point over the prior month and four-tenths of a point over where it was in March. The report shows the state lost 39,700 jobs between May and June. Most of those were in local education, with the state counting public school employees not on contract as unemployed when school is out.
