San Diego County's unemployment rate dropped to 5.8 percent in May, down from a revised 6.1 percent in April, according to the state Employment Development Department.

The county gained 5100 jobs in the month, and leisure and hospitality jobs rose by 3900, the largest gain. Employment in food services and drinking places rose 2800.

Construction jobs rose by 1000. That sector has been generally weak since the Great Recession.

shirleyberan: When the economy is down, drinking tends to rise, but people buy from the bottom shelf, not the top. Summer tourism is helping to lift the restaurant business. Best, Don Bauder

Don - can we create an android that mimics soldiers to spend their expectatoins on another un winnable so nobody has to be blown up for no reasonable reason. Who in a right mind doesn't stop the dismemberment? Cause for me, when I feel helpless to help, I'm looking at the bottom shelf.

I'm fine with any shelf. Tourists, not so much, they don't know where they're driving.

Humans should save themselves from inhumane leadership, that's a fact. They should hear self-survival instinct. You don't have to Bush, especially under the presidency of a "recovering" coke addict(admitted who "god " told him it was his work.) I think he was listening to past drug brain. And racists, make a persistent problem so now Hillary looks normal?

shirleyberan: George W. Bush got away with not having to reveal his ugly past. Facts only dribbled out. Best, Don Bauder
