East Palo Alto Jobless Rate

Someone asked me about this figure this week - now I know. EPA has the highest unemployment rate in the county, says the Palo Alto Daily News.
"With an unemployment rate of 9.8 percent, East Palo Alto has the highest proportion of jobless residents of any city in San Mateo County, according to the state Employment Development Department.

That's pretty high, considering the county owns the second-lowest unemployment rate - 4.0 percent - of the state's 58 counties."
