WASHINGTON (AP) – Unemployment rates fell in 43 states in November, reflecting a modest pickup in the nation’s job market.

The Labor Department says only three states reported increases in their unemployment rates in November. Four states showed no change.

Nationally, the unemployment rate dropped in November to 8.6 percent, the lowest since March 2009. Employers added a net total of 120,000 jobs.

Nevada again had the highest state unemployment rate: 13 percent. It was followed by California at 11.3 percent. North Dakota again enjoyed the lowest unemployment rate: 3.4 percent.
